What’s different about Claim Your Voice?
First, this is a training – a complete and holistic system – that gives you everything you need to become a powerful speaker. Its holistic approach will completely change your skill set... and give you tools that you will use for the rest of your life. You can begin the 10-week training right away...or wait a few months until you have more time.
And, to accommodate busy schedules, you get a full 6 months of live drop-in classes (two a month). This is more than enough to get the support you need, and also accommodates you in case you don't start right away or want to take longer to complete it. We're here for you.
Second... we make it easy. You're guided, step by step, through every exercise. Every level includes practice routines. If you can practice twice a day for just 5-10 minutes, you will transform your speaking skills, and become a more confident and powerful speaker.
Third, we’ve found a solution to the biggest problem with online trainings: people tend to drop out. To change this, we’ve created a fully customized, gamified platform. Gamification brings in game-like elements to engage and inspire you to actually practice. It’s fun, motivating… and it works! In other words, don't expect some boring videos where you're left alone. You'll get motivated by many ways... including by the great community and class members joining you!
About the Coaches
How It Works...
What's included in the Claim Your Voice training:
- 10 Weeks of Training – broken down into 10 levels
The program is set up as 10 levels, with dozens of professionally crafted videos, audios and handouts, laid out in a digestible format where you learn and integrate a bit at a time. Do one a week, or go through them faster if you like.
The 10 levels:
Level 1: The Inner Work of Claiming Your Voice. Before we move into actual speaking and performance training, it's essential to get you in the right state to shift into this new way of being in the world!
Level 2: Cultivating Ease and Relaxing Into Confidence. Level 2 helps you let go of physical tension, improve your breathing, and prepare to enhance your voice.
Level 3: Opening to Being Seen. Learn foundational body language and vocal power.
Level 4: Cultivating Expressiveness. Enhance your enunciation, voice and facial expressions.
Level 5: Crafting Powerful Talks, Part I. Discover how to put together talks that are dynamic, engaging, and sound completely real and non-formulaic.
Level 6: The Art of Connection. This will reorient you to connecting with an audience, and with people in your life - so that others feel deeply seen and heard by you. You'll also learn how to gesture.
Level 7: Presence. The culmination of the other levels, you begin here to find your own authentic presence!
Level 8: Crafting Powerful Talks, Part II. You'll be taught how to craft your own talk, step by step - and you'll put together a short "Manifesto Talk" to share with others!
Level 9: Own the Stage. Learn how to walk effectively... use a mic... and more.
Level 10: Integrating and Growing. Get an introduction to becoming a dynamic speaker, and how to take these skills to a new level.
- 6 Months of Office Hours or Live Drop-in Classes!
While the 10 weeks of training are self-paced to fit into your schedule, you also get plenty of live support. Join either office hours or live classes (two per month) to drop in and get coaching from when you like. Taught by both Jonathan Bender and other certified WholeSpeak coaches, you'll get direct feedback and coaching on topics ranging from vocal power to crafting talks to confidence. They alternate days and times to accommodate members in different time zones, and you can watch class recordings if you miss some.
While optional, they're great to join in when you can. And yes, 6 months is far more than you need, but we know that sometimes people get delayed due to other things in their lives, so we're giving more. Also, many members love them so much that they want to keep coming back.
- Be Supported by a Global Community.
You'll be supported in many ways. We will help you find practice and accountability partners, either in person or over video. You're invited to use the video practice room inside our membership site. Our private Facebook community will also be there to help you grow.
Regardless of where you are, you’ll be connected with a global community of people who are claiming their voice and making a bigger difference.
- Numerous Extra Bonuses! Including...
• Becoming a paid speaker. If you want to monetize speaking and offer your services, we've included several bonuses to support you.
• Nonviolent Communication (NVC). If you experience conflict in your personal or business communications, we've arranged for you a full 6 HOUR TRAINING from Alan Seid of Cascadia Workshops. This is an incredible opportunity to learn from a master - for free.
• We also keep adding in extras for you! Really. Our focus is on overdelivering while also making it easy to learn.
