Tone of Voice

Think back to a time when someone shouted an instruction at you. Do you remember how it made you feel? If you were at a football field, maybe it was appropriate for them to shout at you, but what if they shouted at you in a quiet office?

Psychologists have found that the way we say things is very important. It’s even more impactful than the words we use. When we’re communicating our feelings, tone makes up a large part of face-to-face conversations. Over the phone, it’s the biggest influence by far. A negative tone can have a huge impact on your colleagues, even if you’re telling them great news. By controlling your tone, you can make sure your conversations have the desired effect. This course will show you how.
