Your phone is your friend

Do you use “um” or “like” a lot when you’re speaking?

Do you speak in a monotone voice, where everything you say is on the same pitch?

Or maybe you have problems with “up-speak” where everything you say is a question? “Today, we’re going to cover communication basics?”

Your phone is your friend.

The next time you’re speaking at a meeting, in front of a group, or maybe on a land line–use the voice memo on your phone to record yourself and listen back afterwards.

I know, you hate hearing your voice–so do I. But hearing how you sound to others can be a huge motivator to take steps to improve.
