    • Realize that any professional encounter – from the casual office meeting to a business call to a prepared talk - should all be considered “ performances ” , as someone is always listening or watching. They are opportunities to be your best Self , so -prepare for them.
  • 17. Arthur says:
    • When you give me your Voice, you give me who you are .
  • 18. Vocal Power Tip #7
    • Take conscious ownership of every verbal encounter. Don ’ t feel as though someone is not interested in what you have to say or that someone is too busy which would then make you hurry the conversation. Take your time .
