When you’re on a business call, be careful not to try to sound laid back. You may come off sleepy or disinterested. Your voice may go monotone – which is hard to follow. You may drop into the vocal fry which is difficult to hear on the phone.
Without face to face communication, your listeners need more vocal energy and variety.
Make it easy for your audience: speak up, use your full voice and let the music of your voice clarify your message.
Record yourself on a call, play it back, and be sure that you are easy to follow.
Conference calls are a part of business. With more vocal energy, your message will be clearer, your communication will be more efficient, and the call will be shorter!
