IMG_1136 crop.jpg

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.
