Many are under the mistaken impression the role of a speech coach is to tell you how you should speak. We at New York Speech Coaching are far more interested in guiding you toward how you would like to speak. How do you want to come across in a room? Authoritative? Friendly? Funny? Confident? Knowledgeable? Kind?
Based on the composite of your values and what’s important to you, we can engage in a dialogue about which of your current behaviors support the feeling and perception of those values, and which ones undermine them.
Craft a Speaking Style to Suit Your Life & Career
Most people find there are circumstances where they feel more aligned, authentic, and comfortable, and there are other situations where something “gets in the way.” That something can be nerves, the size of the audience, the comfort level with the content, the seniority of those in the room, or virtual vs. in-person interactions. We believe that these factors don’t need to negatively impact your performance.
Whether you're communicating to one person or one thousand, the ability to express yourself comfortably and present effectively helps you establish a meaningful connection with your audience.
Using Your Voice to Become a Confident Public Speaker
As your personal speech and confidence coach, we work with you individually or in group class environments, offering tools to present yourself and your ideas naturally and without pretense. We're anti-"fake it til you make it" — our philosophy is that there is nothing artificial about the mindfulness, courage, and willpower it takes to behave in alignment with your values - especially in pressure-filled circumstances or in intimidating environments.
Whether your goal is to prepare for an upcoming presentation, speak with more authority in a business environment, or feel more comfortable in social settings, our training empowers you to embrace these situations instead of fear them. You'll have the tools, and more importantly, the confidence to communicate your authentic self to the world.
