Voiceprint offers both individuals and teams clear insight into the way they interact with the outside world and with each other. The themes presented within the analysis are perceptive, often illuminating and easily translate into practical development activities that make a difference.
The thing that I find most beneficial about VoicePrint is that it moves from the interesting to the useful. So it’s interesting to find out about the way I speak and the way I use talk and how that can affect the work I’m doing, but it’s really practical to find out almost immediate steps that I can take to change that for the better.
I’ve learned that when you create space for other people to play a greater part in the conversation, then they take responsibility for the success of that conversation, and ultimately the success of the project afterwards.
Do you think you’re good at communicating? I did! VoicePrint made it clear that I was much less consistent than I realised. It has given me a greater understanding about how my approach and expression impact conversations. It has enabled me to increase my communicative capability, allowing me to handle diverse situations using well-chosen approaches. In short, it has made me a more dynamic and successful communicator!
Each of us has a personal but largely unconscious profile of ‘voices’ which shapes the way we talk and the impact we make. We each favour some voices, and often over-rely on them, while neglecting others.
The effect is not only to leave us less versatile than we could be and need to be, but also deaf and blind to our own inflexibilities and to the consequences of some of our actions.
By bringing your personal pattern of voices, and its impact on others, into conscious awareness, VoicePrint makes your personal, inter-personal and organisational skill-set more complete, more agile and more effective.
