How to Sound More Powerful

How to Sound More Powerful | Influence vs manipulation | Scoop.it

Power has a sound, and feeling powerful actually changes a person’s voice.

That is one finding of a new study on speech and power from San Diego State University and Columbia Business School, recently published in the journal Psychological Science. The findings suggest that we know power when we hear it, and what’s more, we tend to alter our voices to seem more potent, says lead researcher Sei Jin Ko of San Diego State University.

Executives, political leaders and aspirants to power often employ voice coaching to sound commanding–Margaret Thatcher’s well-documented voice training is just one example. But much about voice and power is unintentional, says Ko. Depending on the situation and whether we are addressing a child, boss or friend, our voices subtly shift in pitch, loudness and tone, she adds.

10 Timeless Leadership Lessons to Help Expand Your Influence

10 Timeless Leadership Lessons to Help Expand Your Influence | Influence vs manipulation | Scoop.it

Leaders must take more time to stop, reflect and assess their own thinking, capabilities and aptitudes. They must evaluate how their leadership brand is being perceived by others and whether or not it has grown tired and requires a tune-up.  Leaders must take pause and reach out to those before them who have already lived the situations they are about to experience themselves – and embrace these perspectives as nuggets of wisdom in preparation for what lies ahead of them.

10 Timeless Leadership Lessons to Help Expand Your Influence

Leaders must take more time to stop, reflect and assess their own thinking, capabilities and aptitudes. 

 

 

(From the article): As leaders, you must begin to look beyond the obvious and open your eyes to see the opportunities previous unseen.   Leadership requires you to have circular vision and when you begin to grow complacent, you only see the obvious details before you – rather than those they lie around, beneath and beyond what you seek.  In fact, your mindset becomes stagnate because you are not stretching your perspectives enough to see more than you want to.

 

When you fall into this trap, it’s time to reshuffle the deck, and map out the internal and external factors that are influencing your thinking. You must begin to identify areas that can be improved –  such as relationships, workshop culture, networking, how you are investing in yourself (or lack thereof), etc.

 

It’s not experience, but rather opportunity that is the true mother of success.   Be more mindful about how you manage opportunity before it begins to manage you.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 22, 10:41 AM

The first lesson is a good place to begin. We become so busy we do not look up and from side-to-side. Leaders need to be present and aware of what is happening and not happening. They need to be aware of who is best served to take the reins in a given situation.

 

In School, leadership and management should be intertwined. Quite often, I found that the latter was used almost exclusively and leadership did not exist.

Happy Halloween everyone! Just for fun, I found this timely SlideShare that identifies all the essential qualities for being influential.


Oh, and BTW -- they are also the qualities of fabulous storytelling.


Want to change the world? Then keep this list handy. And each quality is framed as a "Monster" for the holiday -- as in "these are monsters to embrace, because they will bring you results in monster proportions". And that's a good thing :))


Have fun!
