The world is certainty in difficult times with the outbreak of COVID-19. Life just isn’t the same anymore. Many of us who are working professionals have been asked to stay at home, and not go into the office. Those of us who travel for work have been asked to postpone all work trips for the time being. And for those of us who have returned to Singapore from studies or from work, we have been asked to serve a “stay-at-home” notice, or for some, we are currently being quarantined in a place that isn’t home to us. Life as we know it, has come to a stand-still.
However, there are some silver linings in the midst of this whole pandemic. For those of us who are normally too busy with work, we find that now we have a lot more time on our hands. Time to spend with our loved ones at home, time to get some much-needed rest, time to pick up a new hobby, time to do some self-development for ourselves.
One of the best things that you can possibly do if you have time on your hands now would be to invest in your voice! Your voice is an extremely powerful tool, and without even realizing it, the way we speak can often cause others to either switch off, or feel the need to carry on listening to us. Imagine having to listen to someone with a coarse, soft or irritating voice while attending a training workshop for an entire day. Wouldn’t that be draining to your ears? But on the other hand, imagine listening to someone with a pleasant and confident voice. It would be like music to our ears, and we wouldn’t mind listening for hours!
Your voice has the ability to set you apart from others. We are often being judged by the sound of our voices. Your voice can be the reason why your people may or may not remember you. Your voice can be the instrument that helps you to ace the interview that secures your dream job, or that well-deserved promotion. Your voice can also help you to close that deal with that important client. Your voice is indeed the most powerful tool for effective communication.
Here at Be The Voice Academy, we are currently continuing with our one-to-one coaching services at our centre as our training room is large enough to meet the safe distancing requirements, and we have put in place precautionary measures for the safety of all our clients, such as temperature checks and contact tracing.
For those who are unable to physically visit the academy for various reasons such as Home Quarantine, we are also happy to provide the option of online coaching services. We have a platform on Zoom, which has all the technical capabilities for conducting our classes online. If you have time on your hands, do consider investing in your voice, because by doing so, you invest in your jewel. Do contact us, and we will be happy to schedule a free assessment with you, either physically at our centre, or on online platforms. Be The VOICE to succeed! Be The VOICE to motivate! Be The VOICE to influence!
