Well, I know the secret for me.   Decades and decades of coaching people to achieve their full human potential have distilled into this knowledge.  The voices that make me want to listen, the voices that make me fall in love with them, are those who have been trained to speak with a thrilling  but unobtrusive balance of vowels and consonants.   In a wide generalized statement I submit that Vowels play music to our listeners’ ears, while the consonants engage their intellect.  Together they communicate our human presence.  Listen to voices this week  – some people are speak with lots of oompah-oompah vowels heavy noises.  Others lean into speaking with very crisp and over-emphatic consonants.   What is your balance?
