Tongue Twisters for Improved Vocal & Verbal Delivery

February 16, 2013

My leadership communication classes usually involve on-camera situational practice.  Through this means of training, which I’ve offered for 25 years, participants are able to see and hear what they are doing well – and not so well.  Sometimes the focus is on body language.  Other times on tone of voice.  Recently I’ve had several students who need to work on verbal articulation.  In these cases, the person has been harder to understand due to his or her fast rate of speaking and need for articulation.

A friend of mine, who is also a successful leader, once used tongue twisters as speech therapy and greatly improved his vocal and verbal delivery.  Here is a website I came across that explains the benefits of training with tongue twisters and gives some great exercises to use.  Perhaps you can recommend these to an employee, co-worker, child or even use them yourself.
