We have all heard the adage It is not what you say, but how you say it, or Dont take that tone of voice with me, or Watch your mouth. There are five key elements that combine going into your Voice Brand(tm). Most of us think about what we wear before an interview, how we look (are my nails painted, is this lipstick too bold, do I really need to wear pantyhose, are spanx a must with this skirt?), but how many people actually consider how much the sound of their voice shapes their personal brand. Your voice (and the entities that make up your voice brand) are the most unique element of human communication. As humans we have the ability to use our words and language to convey intent, entice, influence, and it the accompanying quality, rate, intensity, frequency, and intonation patterns that combine to either effectively or ineffectively convey necessary information. Breaking down each of the elements that goes into your voice brand helps you to see which areas are your strengths and which may need a little work. Just like going to the gym, you cant spot train only your butt or thighs, but need to work out the entire body and then add a few extra exercises to tone up that body part that needs a little extra love. Your voice is the same way, everything works together to create your voice brand, but by breaking it down into the five main elements, you can get a better sense of the parts you can use to your advantage and those that may need a bit of work.
