How to Live Like a Lady

A Review Course on a Lady's Lifestyle

What do you picture when you hear the word “lady?”

Do you imagine a wealthy woman with an illustrious background?

Is she self-absorbed and out of touch with society?

While these are the kinds of ladies you may have imagined, a lady of the 21st century is the complete opposite.

A modern lady lives a rich, high-quality life, but this is achieved through the satisfaction she gains from her interactions with people and the world around her rather than the amount of money she spends on things.

How to Look Appealing with the Power of Your Voice

HOW TO LOOK APPEALING WITH THE POWER OF YOUR VOICE

A nice voice draws out your charm!
Express yourself better by developing the power of your voice.

Have you ever wondered why you couldn't fully convey your feeling to others, or felt that you were left out of a conversation? The author suggests that that is because the power of your voice wasn’t effective enough. The reason why you’ve been told your voice is “too quiet,” “difficult to make out,” or perhaps even “not convincing enough,” is all because your voice is lacking in power.  We present this unique personal growth title featuring the solution for those who are troubled by this kind of problem.

The book consists of various exercises to enhance the power of your voice by improving the tone of your natural voice you normally use, which will increase self confidence and help you find new potential in yourself.  This isn’t an ordinary how-to book on techniques to make yourself look better for certain occasions, such as giving presentations or speeches. Instead, it illustrates how you can make yourself more appealing by refining the way you let out your voice, manner of speech, posture, and your mentality in certain ways. In this book, author Misumi Otsuki, an experienced vocal trainer for various singers and business executives, sets 10 levels to measure the degree of appeal of your voice, ranging from the kind of voice you use to talk to someone one-on-one to the voice to move the masses, providing different exercises for each level.

Have you ever heard of the word “media training?” Simply put, media training helps prepare you for how to speak to the mass media. It’s is often utilized by people who have to give crisis control (i.e. apology) press conferences. Author Yamaguchi has, over his 17 years as a media training educator, taught over 3500 individuals ranging from CEOs and top managerial professionals from major corporations, PR managers, government officials, politicians and other top business professionals.

The most important aspect of media training is practicing how to speak so that your words cannot be misconstrued. To those of you wondering whether or not this means you need to change the way you normally talk? The answer is, of course, yes. In order to not be misunderstood it’s vital to speak not in the order in which things occurred, but instead from what is most important. Simply by changing the order in which you speak from chronological order to priority order (also called the inverse pyramid speaking order) you can drastically reduce misunderstandings.

Another key aspect to is learning how to properly answer difficult questions from reporters, confidently conveying your ideas without saying anything that could be interpreted in a negative light. Media training methods used to avoid misunderstandings at press conferences can also be used to prevent problems over social media networks.
