 Vocal Techniques-3 Keys to Becoming a Successful Communicator- By Mandy Siegel 20090803-smiling-women-350x263

1.Vocal Confidence for the stage or one to one communication thrives on the courage to be yourself and share your message!

Would you rather run naked into a swarm of bees than sing or speak in public?!?

Have you ever felt so nervous your voice was shaking when you spoke? 

It is a well-known statistic that 98% of people would rather die than speak or perform in public, yet for thousands of years cultures across the globe have been using singing and speaking as a means of connecting and communicating with each other.

Singing and speaking are such important parts of the rituals in our lives. They mark our passage of time; at a marriage ceremony or a funeral, at our important and everyday life events.

That sharing of the voice when expressed in certain ways can connect us deeply with one another and ourselves, whether it’s on the stage, sharing ideas in the boardroom or speaking your mind. In fact, through the practice of singing techniques you can grow your confident voice to command an audience.

2.Trusting Your Inner Voice

Imagine being at peace in front of an audience…

I remember how nervous I used to get before going on stage – in fact, my very first singing gig (over 25 years ago) at an inner city bar, I could barely look at the audience, my voice was shaking and I just looked at the guitarists speaker the entire time.

The vital key to becoming a charismatic confident performer is to be aware of your body (which is your instrument) and to be as present as possible in the moment. Eliminating negative emotions or limitations that hold you back from fully expressing your authentic voice is the key to getting your message heard.

Through the practice of singing and coaching to eliminate emotional blocks, you are able to connect with your voice and your body, grow your inner confidence as well as connecting with your audience in the moment.

3.Singing Creates a Stronger Voice

Have you ever lost your breath whilst singing or speaking?

Do you ever lose control of your voice or forget your words?

Getting to know your voice through vocal techniques, which include breathing techniques, helps eliminate nerves and builds a stronger voice. It also helps you to be grounded and gives you the ability to control and trust your voice.

Everyone has experienced the joy of singing whether you choose to be on the stage as a performer or singing in the car or shower. It feels amazing to let go and have a sing and it doesn’t matter whether you are in tune or not, it simply feels good to breathe deep and let your voice out.

Yet so many of us at some point in our lives have been told, “Shut up, don’t sing!” or “You sound terrible, perhaps you should mime!”

Either way it can have a negative impact, leaving you feeling too shy to even speak up, let alone sing.

These nerves and your mindset can really affect your ability to communicate authentically and have enriching relationships, go for that promotion at work or deliver that key presentation.

We are now at a crossroads in humanity where our heart’s key messages need to be heard more than ever. I believe that through coaching and the techniques of singing you can free your voice and build a more confident and charismatic presence on stage. Now is the time to freely communicate with clarity in all areas of your life and get your message heard to change the lives of the many people who need you.

Grow Your E-Factor!

Advance Your Career, Business and Life Relationships by Growing Your E-Factor 

Where would your career be if you were completely confident in every area of your life? What would your relationships look like if you were able to communicate with ease and grace?

For most people, success comes from their confidence and their ability to communicate succinctly, powerfully and authentically. I call it the E-Factor. The E-Factor is what excellent communicators, leaders, teachers, parents, business owners and entrepreneurs’ possess. What’s more, the E-Factor can be learned! There are three keys to mastering the E-Factor and they are the difference that makes the difference!

The three keys to mastering the E-Factor and immediately experiencing a noticeable change in your confidence and ability to communicate are:

1.  Energy

2.  Esteem

3.  And your ability to Express yourself fully and authentically

The E-Factor is a proven science that harnesses your natural ability to use your body in conjunction with your mind to powerfully express yourself.

 The solution is simple and hugely profound. Voice of Life Coaching will help you to develop the Energy, Esteem and self Expression that you need to access your E-Factor. 

Did you know that a large majority of people are using less than half of their lung capacity and have no control over their voice? They’re getting choked, dominated and they’re stumbling over their words in their inability to tap into to their natural true power. This stops them from creating meaningful relationships and moving their careers and businesses forward. In just minutes, you’ll learn how to position your body and utilise your breathing to massively grow your energy and your physical presence.

Through Voice of Life Coaching you will learn how to regain the control over your voice and your mind, improving how you communicate with others and positively shifting your internal dialogue! You’ll be amazed how the techniques that you learn will powerfully influence all areas of your life.

 “Voice of Life coaching has truly helped me break through my stress and provided me with the tools to be calm in moments that would’ve caused me anxiety in the past.” Nada Wentzel – Managing Partner, The Jonah Group

Through Voice of Life sessions you’ll learn to:

  • Massively grow your energy reserves
  • Grow your physical presence
  •  Broaden your range of communication
  •  Speak and present with confidence and authority
  •  Fully express your authentic self
  •  Remove that insecure, negative self-talk
  •  Fulfil career aspirations with another level of inner confidence
  •  Nail that next job interview, stage performance or presentation with gusto
  •  Ignite your passion to propel you into your future
  • ·      Master The E-Factor

These sessions are perfect if (at times you):

  •  Feel too nervous to speak up in group situations
  •  Find it difficult to find the right words
  •  Are challenged by strong personalities
  • Feel your energy drop when asked to present to a group
  • Suffer from anxiety or fears
  • Have lost your ‘mojo’
  • Can’t seem to ask for what you want

“Voice of Life Coaching has helped me to express myself clearly, succinctly and powerfully. The processes are amazingly simple and a lot of fun. Anyone can benefit from the sessions”

Dianne Marshall –Year Level Coordinator, Pascoe Vale Girls College

 At Voice of Life we help you discover how you can shift feelings of fear and turn them into courage. Over a series of one on one sessions you will unlock your voice within and no longer be without. Feel your confidence rise from session to session.

I will show you how to get the E-Factor working for you and you will notice immediate changes in your ability to control your voice and powerfully express yourself.

I look forward to working with you

Warmest wishes

Are You Being Heard?

Welcome Everyone

From the moment we are born we have an innate desire to express ourselves-aiming to express our needs, hopes desires and dreams. In my experience it depends on how well our needs were met, our voice was heard and our dreams shared as to how we actually express who we truly are at any given moment.

For much of our lives we are told to “shut up”, for example the old saying “children should be seen and not heard” has impacted many of us. What this creates is a “shut down” where people tend to hide their voice, opinions, thoughts and feelings.

Voice Of Life is about helping us remove the blocks and obstacles that stand in the way of allowing us to express who we really are. It’s about opening those channels and building confidence in oneself to get back to that natural state, finding greater confidence, energy levels and enthusiasm for life.

I have spent 25 years working with and exploring the voice literally as a singer, singing teacher and performer and metaphorically via coaching and writing. I have worked with creating characters to express different parts of myself on stage, expressing my voice through writing and healing those parts of myself that were “never allowed to be voiced”.

Spending many years working in the Human Resource field as a Generalist also  taught me the complete value of effective and assertive communication skills. Being in a twelve-year relationship with an amazing partner  continues to show me the value of truly expressing my voice, listening and learning about communication on all levels.

I believe it’s a continual journey of discovery and healing in allowing our true selves to be heard confidently in the world and in our relationships, particularly our relationship with ourselves. We all have internal voices, some are kind and others not so kind and it’s my belief that we can manage and get rid of those nasty voices that no longer serve us and are more often that not just a habit and habits can be broken can’t they?

I can help you breakthrough your beliefs, teach you tools and techniques to present and speak with more confidence and guide you to your Voice of Life. Feel free to contact me in order to feel, look and sound more like your true self. I would be honoured to be a part of your team

Warmest Wishes Mandy joyful
