“Why Speakers Need A Leadership Voice” by Nick Morgan at Forbes on 2 December 2014

In order to lead, you need to be able to find your authentic leadership voice. I’ve previously discussed an article on what has been found to be a more effective leadership voice in the Canadian context, but I liked the angle that this article provided. Not only does a leader’s voice become deeper and varies less in pitch, but the language becomes more declarative. In your followers, this builds credibility and trust. What really made me want to bring this article to you is the following sentence:

“So it’s not about faking it until you make it, but it is about believing that you have something worthwhile to share with the audience and adopting the voice to match that authority.”
