There are many different aspects to consider when preparing for successful communication scenarios.  In earlier posts, we’ve presented you with the foundations of speaking such as building credibility, competence, charisma and character.  Now let’s look at utilizing these foundations and putting them into action while crafting your delivery style.

Vocal qualities refer to your pitch, rate and volume.  Body language refers to eye contact, facial expression, gesturing and the way you stand. Your vocal and physical delivery styles will have a huge impact on success.

In the coming posts, we’ll focus on each of these two areas in order to enhance your delivery.  In the meantime, take a few minutes to assess your current delivery style by contemplating these questions:

Vocal Delivery

  • Do you have a high or low tone of voice?
  • Do you speak quickly or slowly? 
  • How loudly or softly do you speak?
  • Do you articulate your words? Do you mumble?

Are you frequently asked to repeat what you say? This is usually a clue that you may have some vocal delivery issues?

Body Language and Delivery

  • Do you use hand gestures? Too many or not enough?
  • Do you have strong eye contact or avoid eye contact?
  • Is your body relaxed or stiff when you speak?
  • Are you dependent on notes or presentation aids?
  • Do you lean, tap on things or rock back & forth while speaking?

Confident body language and vocal delivery skills will help to advance your speaking!
