Executive communications expert Dianna Booher shares communication tips.

If you were participating in a corporate skit, how would you play the part of a complainer? (Whiny, nasal voice?) How would you play the part of a crook? (Raspy, harsh tone?) How would you play the role of an incompetent nerd? (High-pitched, rapid, quivering voice?) How about the role of a sexy coquette? (Breathy, slow speech?) An impatient teen? (High-pitched, fast-paced, shallow?)

All other things being equal, movie producers accept or reject actors based on how their appearance and their voice match the characters they’re to portray. You may be typed for life by the impression that your voice creates. Become aware of how you sound to others—your volume, pitch, speaking rate, tone, intensity, and other qualities.
