Voice Coaching

1-on-1 Customized Coaching

Gain a powerful voice that will set you apart from your peers. Our coaches will teach you how.

 

What is Executive Voice Coaching?

Executive Voice Coaching creates a sustainable and powerful change in your voice. That alone can enhance your executive presence, improve your overall communication skills and help you quickly reach your career goals. 

 

Our coaches are trained in the Espeland Method™, an interdisciplinary approach that combines our Founder and CEO’s performative training and voice prowess with Columbia Business School MBA education and experience in the corporate business world.

 

We harness our unique skill set to help business executives articulate their authentic selves. By incorporating mental, physical, and emotional interdisciplinary tools, our coaches craft your inner dialogue to bring your individual power to the forefront. 

You can literally and figuratively change your voice and the trajectory of your career.

The Espeland Method™ of coaching has four key components:
 

  • Authenticity 

  • Interdisciplinary Levers (Mental, Physical, and Emotional) 

  • Performative Training meets Corporate Strategy 

  • Fun
     

We customize our coaching roadmaps for each client’s needs. Specific skills one can acquire include:
 

  • Controlling the voice to sound stronger, clearer, and carry gravitas over digital media and other public speaking situations.

  • Managing melody inclusive of breathing, pausing, pitch, and speed.

  • Improving overall confidence both inside and outside the boardroom. 

  • Employing storytelling techniques with authentic emotions.

  • Building executive presence. 

  • Crafting effective presentations, both written and spoken. 

  • Practicing for high-stakes interviews, including management consulting casing. 

  • Harnessing the body to play its “instrument” and effectively control communication. 

  • Pacing of speech, whether it is faster or slower.

  • Expelling inflections and idiosyncratic speaking ‘ticks’ such as upspeak. 

  • Reducing accents and dialects, as well as improving overall diction and clarity in American English.

  • Understanding American English colloquialisms, jargon, and slang. 

  • Speaking with the body, including facial expressions and body language. 

  • Building written communication techniques for presentations and decks. 

  • Utilizing improv and acting exercises to strengthen abilities and tap into newfound confidence. 

  • Harnessing custom meditations and affirmations to build confidence and quiet nerves.

Courses

On-demand online courses to harness your voice on your schedule

 

On-Demand Online Courses

Do you speak to clients, colleagues, bosses, patients, prospects, or the public to do your job?

Then your livelihood depends on your voice being powerful, professional, convincing, authentic, and commanding.

But mastery of your voice does not come naturally. It requires identification of the weaknesses, tailored skill development, and high-quality practice.

Our Founder has curated her Espeland Method™ into a robust online program offering everything needed to build a powerful voice.  Of course, there is a cost, but it’s a cost you cannot afford to avoid.

What is the cost of jobs or promotions you didn't get because you didn't seem confident or professional enough?

What is the cost of lost sales and clients because you weren't persuasive or authentic enough?

What is the cost of lost debates with colleagues because you weren't commanding or powerful enough?

Multiply those losses over a lifetime and you can see the value in perfecting your voice.

Our courses come with an improvement guarantee - that’s how much Melanie believes in her courses and your capability.

People Are Saying.

quote_edited.png

I highly recommend Melanie as an executive presence coach. I have worked with her for several months and she has been fantastic, helping me navigate Covid-time Zoom presence, presentation skills and video preparation/presence. I also tapped her to to be a webinar monitor for a Home Office webinar that I developed. She was a superstar!
