Did you ever notice that your bad speaking habits happen in high-stakes situations? When you’re comfy cozy with someone you know well, you’ve got no problems at all.
But in a meeting or delivering a presentation–that’s a different story! Suddenly you can draw a blank and forget what you were going to say! Or you just start talking too fast and using too many words to deliver a simple point.
Influential people already know the rules.
And they’re not going to stop learning.
They learned how to speak with a standard American English accent. They learned and practice being concise while speaking.
They understand that being very well-spoken is a skill, not a gift. They’ve studied and practiced everything else they’re good at so why should influence and likability by any different?
Let’s take a look at some case studies.
“I’m an executive, good at my job, been going up the ranks in my career.
When I was in meetings, though, I felt like no one was listening to me. Often I couldn’t get what was in my head out of my mouth. Sometimes someone else would say just what I was trying to say and get massive kudos for it! It was my idea! And when I got nervous, I would talk crazy fast!
I met with Ita, and she told me that none of this was a mystery. That I was normal & it happened to most people! All fantastic communicators have worked on their communication skills!
Please stop interrupting me.
“I was doing well in my career, moving up the ladder and finding myself in more client meetings. But sometimes people would interrupt me or not understand my message. Sometimes I’d be speaking, and my mind would draw a blank. I had no idea what the problem was!
Then my colleague told me about Convey. The process was seamless. I met with Ita; she told me precisely what I was doing wrong and taught me how to fix it. I never knew it was a thing!”
“I’m originally from Japan, but after 17 years on Long Island, my accent was a mix of the two. It was awful.
Twelve sessions later, I gave a speech at my best friend’s wedding. I was easily able to apply all the techniques Ita taught me. It was incredible. One woman blamed me for smearing her makeup; she was crying so hard.”
You can completely change your accent, no matter what anyone says. I’ve been doing it for my clients successfully for 25 years. You only have to want it bad enough and follow the rules 🙂

My speaking voice!
“I hated the sound of my voice. It was timid and sing-songy. It was causing me to be interrupted when presenting at work. It used to take me as many as ten tries to record a voice-mail message.
When I listened to myself, it didn’t sound intelligent. I looked forever for help and never found it until I started working with Ita. She understood me right away and explained that I had to do my part of the work. It took time, but it wasn’t hard.
The results have been incredible–my voice is charismatic and confident all at the same time. I’m never interrupted, and people love my ideas!”

Magnetic people have magnetic voices.
Do you love the voice you hear on the recorder? Because that’s the one other people hear. Most people don’t know they are not speaking with their true voice, but yes, their voices are hindered by physiological tension.
