17: Using your voice, stepping into your power, and building your presence by being present with Elissa Weinzimmer, Voice and Presence Coach
On today’s episode of Medium Well I chat with Elissa Weinzimmer, a voice and presence coach and the founder of Voice Body Connection. We talk about building your presence through being present, how mindfulness plays a role, and even do some on-air live coaching to help me be more concise and articulate on this podcast! Elissa is a gem and her thoughts and advice resonated with me deeply as her advice was so much deeper than what you might expect from a speaking coach.
In this episode, we discuss:
How she decided to be a voice and presence coach and her story
Why we shouldn’t judge how we speak
How she uses vocal coaching to help individuals be more authentically themselves
How having a voice is changing, and why we need to be using our voice
How to stop shouting and cut through the noise to reach the right people
How to change habits— vocal and otherwise
How to be more present and have a stronger presence
A live, on-air coaching session to help me improve my speaking on the podcast
All the deets:
Get to know Elissa’s work better through her company, Voice Body Connection.
