Karen Dietz's curator insight, July 23, 2013 9:26 PM

Here is a 60 minute podcast that is really great. I like how the speakers speak slowly but not too slow that you are bored. And the presentation isn't too fast that you are scrambling to take notes.


I curated this because all of us need to develop our signature voice. When you are authentically sharing your stories and connecting with your audience, that is what you are doing -- conveying your signature voice. This is distinct to you.


But what I really like about this podcast is that it focuses on your voice and how to develop it. In addition to the presenters defining 'signature voice', they also define executive presence, debunk a few myths about presence and leadership (like one size fits all), and they talk about specific communication strategies to develop your signature voice.


Better yet, the presenters (Amy Jen Su and Muriel Wilkins) give examples. Yahoo!


And what strikes me as I listed to this is that in coaching leaders in storytelling, we cover all that the presenters go over. Which means that every business, in mastering storytelling, is also mastering leadership and executive presence. And this is a good thing!


This podcast and accompanying slides -- even though they never mention storytelling -- is chock full of great info and tips that you will be able to put into practice. You will be a better storyteller and a better leader!
