In these seminars, we not only focus on the voice and body language, but also delve into the deepest mental training techniques. You will intensely train your voice to be flexible, healthy and strong, explore the techniques an actor uses to master the owning the room, and remain calm, focused and mentally alert for any situation.
Own the Room!
Owning the room is about Presence, having an inner and outer strength that makes you unstoppable and irresistible. Through an intense course in mental training, voice training and body language, you will be mentally and physically ready to take on the most difficult of situations. You will be able to remain calm under stress, convincing in your arguments, and motivating to those who need you to be strong.
Why train the voice? According to the Karmasin Motivation Research in Austria, a trained voice conveys authority, assertiveness, credibility and competence. Picture this: You come into a meeting and there, standing directly in front of you, is a beautiful woman dressed to the nines. She is wearing a beautiful Armani suit and Gucci shoes and is beautifully styled. You go to her to introduce yourself, and, all of sudden, she says hello in a high-pitched voice that reminds you of Minnie Mouse! It is difficult to take her seriously.
Emotions, competence and authority are conveyed through the voice, and no matter how well-dressed or well-educated a person is, if the voice doesn't show it, we don't accept the person as an authority.
The Body Language
Haven't we already learned everything there is to know about body language? Maybe. Maybe not. Countless studies have shown that the body language is the most influential aspect of communication. To understand how body language works is to master the art of communication. In this seminar we will approach body language as an actor approaches it: from the inside out! You will learn techniques that actors use while preparing for the stage to help you BE confident and convincing. To assure that your body and voice are in tune with each other to succeed!
