I hear the thinking behind spoken words. Can you?
YES, YOU CAN! I promise. In our professional, personal, and public lives our sound messages matter. Decisions of whom we work for, whom we work with, and who works for us are made based on how we say what we say – our sound messages. A sound message is the volume, tone, and word-speed plus silence, and all other sounds coming from our mouth and throat while we speak. Granted, it’s plenty to track, but if we pick around the edges of a sound message, we’ll find a thread we can pull to unravel it all. Welcome to Sound Messages.
I am fascinated by the sound of languages. Particularly, I concentrate on how "the way we say our words" (our Sound Messages) is a separate meaning from the words spoken. In fact, they are a ComPletely separate language. This separate language will support the words, be neutral to them, or completely detract from them. Our Sound Messages are clues to ourselves and help us manage ourselves, especially with feedback from others. Sound Messages reveal our emotions and the emotions of others. They are clues to manage our relationships with others. Sound Messages reveal the "who we are," the "why we are," the "who they are," and must be known to manage any and all spoken relationships.
My goal is to teach you how to use Sound Messages (the way we say our words) to listen deeply to yourself, your family, your friends, your peers and employers, and your employees.
On Sound Ground,
Founder & President
