    292: How to Use Your Tone of Voice to Win

    292: How to Use Your Tone of Voice to Win

    I bet you’ve heard people talk about using their body language to become a better presenter or speaker. You may have also heard them talk about using your body language and facial expressions to become a better leader. But have you heard people talk about using your tone of voice to be a better speaker, leader, and advocate? 
    Probably not. And that’s a problem. In many ways, your tone of voice is more important than your body language or facial expressions. In this episode, you’ll learn why that’s true and how to use your tone of voice to build belief and win.

How to Win at Life

I found Heather’s show last year and now every time I am wanting to stand up for myself or make a difficult decision I ask myself WWHD! What would Heather Do.

Her ability to take her courtroom experience and distill it into useable and practical strategies that I can use daily - is second to none.

I think we all need a Heather in the courtroom of our mind.

Love the show!

Insightful with actionable content!

This podcast is such a joy to listen to—I love when I can listen to an insightful conversation that doesn’t just give inspiration and mindset shifts but includes actionable next steps to take on the topic. Loved the episode on finding your groove and the tips about taking small steps to listening to your intuition to start trusting it. Thank you!
