Holding a persuasive speech

Showing employees and stakeholders ones’ vision and mission and convincing them of an idea is a key social skill of a manager. In an increasingly connected and digital world, it is important that the communication works, whether it is face-to-face, by phone or through a video call.

That is why it is often just as important to work on speech rate, voice pitch and timbre as on content. For example, listeners assume speakers with a deeper voice have more competencies and strengths than a higher-voice speaker. 

It is important to know and use the toolbox which the voice represents. We share knowledge about these and other social skills you need in the digital world at the Semler Company Campus.
