    If everyone took an extra minute to think before speaking, the world would be such a better place.

    7 sins of speaking:
    excuses, not taking responsibility
    exaggeration, that can become lying
    dogmatism, confusion of facts with opinions
    H - honesty, be clear and straight
    A - authenticity, be yourself
    I - integrity, be your word, trustworthy
    L - love, wish people well
    Humans prefer voices, that are low(coming from chest), rich, warm, smooth. YOU can train to get there (coach, posture, breathing, exercises).
    Change tones, to communicate meanings. Dont use wrong tonality and make it reflect what you are trying to communicate.
    Pitch - how high
    Volume - from loud to quiet
    2X arms up, deep breath in - breath out as arms go down
    warm up lips "ba, ba, ba..." 8:14
    lips coming alive "brrrr" like kids
    tongue exaggerated "la, la, la, la"
    "rrrrrrrrr" like champagne for the tongue
    siren high to low 2x "oooweeeeaaaw" copied comment , used for reminder perposes

      ​@ScorpioHR sometimes people don't realise what they are doing wrong or that something they are doing is bad for them. I like when someone gives me advice on how to improve my life. This TED talk is the speaker judging everyone for speaking or listening poorly, and tries to help them, so he judges them, yet does it in a positive/loving way.

    I was a professional pilot back in the days when carbon mikes were the only choice. As a female, I learned to lower my voice’s pitch in order to activate the carbon crystals. Discovered that I also got a lot more respect and was heard better when I used the deeper richer timbre. Also stopped ending all sentences like a question. That really eliminated a lot of confusion with air traffic control.

      When I was learning to fly (PPL) was told that I sounded like a mouse by my second instructor. I'd already done 13 hours with my first instructor. Lost my confidence to fly as easily as that. (1st instructor left as got a job with an airline). He was all the qualities needed to be an top class instructor because I flew my first solo under his guidance. My 2nd instructor wasn't and I gave up flying sadly. How to speak made all the difference to me. Will always appreciate the first instructor for an amazing life experience. Second instructor can't take that away.

    This was truly a great speech, clearly the speaker knows and uses his theory very well. Everyone in the aucience was interested, everyone watching the video probably as well. I really wonder what would happen if more people learned and used this theory, not only for big speeches but also for normal conversations. As the speaker said, the human voice is very powerful, and I think the world would be a better place if more people knew how to use it correctly.

    Notes and summary for myself
    The seven deadly sins of Speaking
    1. Gossip: Speaking negatively about someone who is not present. People will not trust you because a while later, you will gossip about them.
    2. Judging: It is hard to listen to someone who consistently judge you during a conversation.
    3. Negativity: Having a negative viewpoint on things.
    4. Complaining: which is mere viral misery. Could be on anything, politics, sports, or the weather.
    5. Excuses: Not taking responsibility for our actions and being a blame-thrower
    6. Exaggeration: Drawing an imaginary image and inflating stuff excessively. It can get to the point of outright **lying**.
    7. Dogmatism: stating your opinions as if they are facts without consideration of an evidence to support your claims. In other words, Bombarding people with biased opinions on a certain topic.
    - Foundation of powerful speech (HAIL)
    1. Honesty: Being clear and straight. Not using deception and lies. But using brutal and unnecessary honesty could hurt people. "Honesty tempered with Love".
    2. Authenticity: Being yourself and not imitating a non-genuine persona. "Standing in your own truth".
    3. Integrity: Be your word. Do what you say. Be trustworthy, and take responsibility.
    4. Love: Wishing people well. No judgement.
    - Toolbox of Speech (Voice)
    1. Register: Talk from your chest, not the nose or throat. "We vote for the politicians with lower voices". People associate depth with power and authority.
    2. Timbre: The way the voice feels. "Rich, Smooth, Warm, like hot chocolate." It is a skill that can be trained.
    3. Prosody: Talking with enthusiasm, having a rhythmic voice, and not being monotonic like a robot. Avoid repetitive prosody as if every statement was a question.
    4. Pace: Talk normally and slow right down to... *Emphasize*. Talking fast or slow at the right time is key in conveying your point.
    5. Silence: A powerful tool to bring attention. Should not be filled with filler words such as UH's and UM's.
    6. Pitch: To deliver an idea or ask a question and being understood. (The caps-lock of speech)
    7. Volume: The quieter the better in bringing attention. But don't be too quiet all the time and don't be a broadcaster too. Pay attention to your loudness.
    - Warm up the toolbox of voice
    1. Arms up, take a deep breath and sigh.
    2. Lips: (BA BA BA)
    3. Lips: Horse sound
    4. Tongue: Exaggerated (LA LA LA)
    5. Tongue: Roll an R (RRRRR)
    6. The siren (WEEEE [High] yoooo [Low])
    Speaking is one part of the puzzle because having a good conversation also depends on being a good listener.
    Edit: Reconstructed the phrasing of the point of dogmatism.
    Thank you for all the beautiful replies.Happy to make your day a bit easier :)

      This is great insights especially the seven deadly sina of communications.
      The society, our parents ... we heard them gossiping so our brain functions in a way that this is normal but it is not. It is an illusion that fog up with negativity. People even gossips just to feel close to one another.
      It is okay to vent your problems but never gossips in day to day basis. It is very unhealthy.

    This video is highly impressing to me!!😊 Seven deadly sins of speaking, which was mentioned first, were so exact to what most people say that I was so much surprised!! I have seen various people using words that imply those sins. It was also really good to know about “HAIL” that meant “to greet or acclaim enthusiastically” and contained honesty, authenticity, integrity, and love. In addition, the six vocal warm-up exercises
    helped me a lot!!! Finally, the questions that were asked in the conclusion of this speech were so remarkable that I would never forget!! :D

    Four things I learned from watching this talk
    1. "Seven deadly sins of speaking to avoid"
    1) gossip -> I need to work on this sin
    2) judging -> I need to work on this sin
    3) negativity -> I need to work on this sin
    4) complaining -> I need to work on this sin
    5) excuses
    6) lying (embroidery, exaggeration)
    7) dogmatism (confusion between fact and opinion)
    2. what I need to say: four powerful cornerstones of speech to make a change in the world
    c.f. "hail means to greet or acclaim enthusiastically"
    1) H: honesty (be clear and straight)
    2) A: authenticity (be myself)
    3) I: integrity (be my word)
    4) L: love (wish them well)
    3. how I need to say: tools to play with to increase power of my speech
    1) register: e.g. if wanting weight, lower pitch of voice
    2) timbre: the way voice feels e.g. breathing, posture
    3) prosody: rhythm (e.g. not monotone)
    4) pace: e.g. slow to emphasize
    5) pitch: e.g. make pitch high or low
    6) volume: e.g. louder to emphasize
    4. exercise the following before making a presentation
    1) arms up to sigh out with ahh
    2) lips with ba ba
    3) lips with brrr
    4) tongue with la
    5) tongue rolling an r
    6) siren from we to aww

    Out of all the suggestions listed, I think "Pace" is perhaps the most difficult to implement. We live in a world where people don't have the patience to listen to someone who speaks slowly. You'll get interrupted constantly, or people will simply stop listening because you're taking up too much of their time. Too frequently you'll have to say what's on your mind really quickly, or not at all. Really, everything mentioned is an excellent practice, but it's only useful when speaking with someone who practices the same principles.

    This speech helped me a lot, I have learned a lot from this. I feel frustrated that I can't communicate my point properly while speaking. Because I often feel anxious when speaking in front of many people. In this 10-minute long video, I get all the tips I need, even down to the smallest things I might never have thought of before, like that I can work with my voice tool box to speak better. There are also some comments that give implied messages from the video that make me think that i can be powerful with my voice tool box, if i speak with calmly and love. Hopefully I can apply it when I speak in front of many people in the next opportunity

    "What would the world be like if we were creating sound consciously, consuming sound consciously and designing all our environments consciously for sound? That would be a world that does sound beautiful, and the one where understanding would be the norm and that is an idea worth spreading." These words caught my attention. INCREDIBLE LECTURE!

    Verbal and non-verbal communication play important roles in TED Talks. The speakers use their words carefully to convey their ideas in a clear, concise, and engaging manner. They also use tone of voice, body language, and gestures to enhance their message and to connect with their audience. Effective non-verbal communication in a TED Talk can help the speaker convey their passion and enthusiasm for their topic, making their talk more memorable and inspiring to the audience.

    The human voice: It's the instrument we all play. It's the most powerful sound in the world, probably. It's the only one that can start a war or say "I love you." And yet many people have the experience that when they speak, people don't listen to them. And why is that? How can we speak powerfully to make change in the world? What I'd like to suggest, there are a number of habits that we need to move away from. I've assembled for your pleasure here seven deadly sins of speaking. I'm not pretending this is an exhaustive list, but these seven, I think, are pretty large habits that we can all fall into. First, gossip. Speaking ill of somebody who's not present. Not a nice habit, and we know perfectly well the person gossiping, five minutes later, will be gossiping about us. Second, judging. We know people who are like this in conversation, and it's very hard to listen to somebody if you know that you're being judged and found wanting at the same time. Third, negativity. You can fall into this. My mother, in the last years of her life, became very negative, and it's hard to listen. I remember one day, I said to her, "It's October 1 today," and she said, "I know, isn't it dreadful?" (Laughter) It's hard to listen when somebody's that negative. (Laughter) And another form of negativity, complaining. Well, this is the national art of the U.K. It's our national sport. We complain about the weather, sport, about politics, about everything, but actually, complaining is viral misery. It's not spreading sunshine and lightness in the world. Excuses. We've all met this guy. Maybe we've all been this guy. Some people have a blamethrower. They just pass it on to everybody else and don't take responsibility for their actions, and again, hard to listen to somebody who is being like that. Penultimate, the sixth of the seven, embroidery, exaggeration. It demeans our language, actually, sometimes. For example, if I see something that really is awesome, what do I call it? (Laughter) And then, of course, this exaggeration becomes lying, and we don't want to listen to people we know are lying to us. And finally, dogmatism. The confusion of facts with opinions. When those two things get conflated, you're listening into the wind. You know, somebody is bombarding you with their opinions as if they were true. It's difficult to listen to that. So here they are, seven deadly sins of speaking. These are things I think we need to avoid. But is there a positive way to think about this? Yes, there is. I'd like to suggest that there are four really powerful cornerstones, foundations, that we can stand on if we want our speech to be powerful and to make change in the world. Fortunately, these things spell a word. The word is "hail," and it has a great definition as well. I'm not talking about the stuff that falls from the sky and hits you on the head. I'm talking about this definition, to greet or acclaim enthusiastically, which is how I think our words will be received if we stand on these four things. So what do they stand for? See if you can guess. The H, honesty, of course, being true in what you say, being straight and clear. The A is authenticity, just being yourself. A friend of mine described it as standing in your own truth, which I think is a lovely way to put it. The I is integrity, being your word, actually doing what you say, and being somebody people can trust. And the L is love. I don't mean romantic love, but I do mean wishing people well, for two reasons. First of all, I think absolute honesty may not be what we want. I mean, my goodness, you look ugly this morning. Perhaps that's not necessary. Tempered with love, of course, honesty is a great thing. But also, if you're really wishing somebody well, it's very hard to judge them at the same time. I'm not even sure you can do those two things simultaneously. So hail. Also, now that's what you say, and it's like the old song, it is what you say, it's also the way that you say it. You have an amazing toolbox. This instrument is incredible, and yet this is a toolbox that very few people have ever opened. I'd like to have a little rummage in there with you now and just pull a few tools out that you might like to take away and play with, which will increase the power of your speaking. Register, for example. Now, falsetto register may not be very useful most of the time, but there's a register in between. I'm not going to get very technical about this for any of you who are voice coaches. You can locate your voice, however. So if I talk up here in my nose, you can hear the difference. If I go down here in my throat, which is where most of us speak from most of the time. But if you want weight, you need to go down here to the chest. You hear the difference? We vote for politicians with lower voices, it's true, because we associate depth with power and with authority. That's register. Then we have timbre. It's the way your voice feels. Again, the research shows that we prefer voices which are rich, smooth, warm, like hot chocolate. Well if that's not you, that's not the end of the world, because you can train. Go and get a voice coach. And there are amazing things you can do with breathing, with posture, and with exercises to improve the timbre of your voice. Then prosody. I love prosody. This is the sing-song, the meta-language that we use in order to impart meaning. It's root one for meaning in conversation. People who speak all on one note are really quite hard to listen to if they don't have any prosody at all. That's where the word "monotonic" comes from, or monotonous, monotone. Also, we have repetitive prosody now coming in, where every sentence ends as if it were a question when it's actually not a question, it's a statement? (Laughter) And if you repeat that one, it's actually restricting your ability to communicate through prosody, which I think is a shame, so let's try and break that habit. Pace. I can get very excited by saying something really quickly, or I can slow right down to emphasize, and at the end of that, of course, is our old friend silence. There's nothing wrong with a bit of silence in a talk, is there? We don't have to fill it with ums and ahs. It can be very powerful. Of course, pitch often goes along with pace to indicate arousal, but you can do it just with pitch. Where did you leave my keys? (Higher pitch) Where did you leave my keys? So, slightly different meaning in those two deliveries. And finally, volume. (Loud) I can get really excited by using volume. Sorry about that, if I startled anybody. Or, I can have you really pay attention by getting very quiet. Some people broadcast the whole time. Try not to do that. That's called sodcasting, (Laughter) Imposing your sound on people around you carelessly and inconsiderately. Not nice. Of course, where this all comes into play most of all is when you've got something really important to do. It might be standing on a stage like this and giving a talk to people. It might be proposing marriage, asking for a raise, a wedding speech. Whatever it is, if it's really important, you owe it to yourself to look at this toolbox and the engine that it's going to work on, and no engine works well without being warmed up. Warm up your voice. Actually, let me show you how to do that. Would you all like to stand up for a moment? I'm going to show you the six vocal warm-up exercises that I do before every talk I ever do. Any time you're going to talk to anybody important, do these. First, arms up, deep breath in, and sigh out, ahhhhh, like that. One more time. Ahhhh, very good. Now we're going to warm up our lips, and we're going to go Ba, Ba, Ba, Ba, Ba, Ba, Ba, Ba. Very good. And now, brrrrrrrrrr, just like when you were a kid. Brrrr. Now your lips should be coming alive. We're going to do the tongue next with exaggerated la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la. Beautiful. You're getting really good at this. And then, roll an R. Rrrrrrr. That's like champagne for the tongue. Finally, and if I can only do one, the pros call this the siren. It's really good. It starts with "we" and goes to "aw." The "we" is high, the "aw" is low. So you go, weeeaawww, weeeaawww. Fantastic. Give yourselves a round of applause. Take a seat, thank you. (Applause) Next time you speak, do those in advance. Now let me just put this in context to close. This is a serious point here. This is where we are now, right? We speak not very well to people who simply aren't listening in an environment that's all about noise and bad acoustics. I have talked about that on this stage in different phases. What would the world be like if we were speaking powerfully to people who were listening consciously in environments which were actually fit for purpose? Or to make that a bit larger, what would the world be like if we were creating sound consciously and consuming sound consciously and designing all our environments consciously for sound? That would be a world that does sound beautiful, and one where understanding would be the norm, and that is an idea worth spreading. Thank you. (Applause)

    Sometimes we need silence. Sometimes we need to listen and process what is being said before responding. I just remembered someone nothing that it is important to have a moment of pause in responding during a conversation to allow proper thinking.
    What a world we would live in if we stopped the gossiping, negative talk, judgement, and instead actually listened, showed compassion for others, and talked effectively and with purpose… there is still hope!

    I was a speech & debate champion in HS & college (Harvard) and then a debate and speech coach at the HS and college levels for more than 30 years, as well as a founder of urban speech and debate. Everything Julian Treasure says here is exactly what high school speech teachers try to convey to their students each and every day; policy debaters try to persuade by facts and logic, whereas events like oratory involve rhetorical methods (some of which are mentioned in the talk) for persuasion. These essentially are known to us as LOGOS and ETHOS; the best speakers can not only control register, timbre, prosody, pace, silence, pitch and volume, but also can start a speech with a hook, an introduction, a topic sentence, 2-3 arguments, surrounded by rhetorical flourishes (three words starting with the same consonant is a famous one) a conclusion and a closing hook.

    I think there are contextual imperatives to this advice. Public spaces deserve this kind of etiquette. Private spaces require a lot more authenticity and openness, as well as listening and speaking SKILLS that we should be teaching from day 1.
    I think we are also being asked to assume that wanting one's words to impact others and "change the world" is an unequivocal good. There are many things we want different that it takes us a while to realize that our desire was uninformed and we are grateful in the end to have been unsuccessful at getting what we want.

    Excellent talk! It shared many useful and practical techniques that are bound to help anyone. The content of the message and the quality of the vocal delivery are exceedingly important, but they are not the only mechanisms by which one could entice people to listen. I've found that there is a hidden amplifying magnet in that tool box that could exact a considerable impact on how willing people would be to listen to what you have to say---especially, when addressing smaller audiences---and that is 'eye contact'. In an increasingly fast-paced and impatient world, it has become a serious challenge to grab and maintain people's attention long enough to communicate an idea. The short attention span could be greatly remedied using effective eye contact strategies. For example, I have tried to deliver the same talk to the same audience with and without effective eye contact and the difference between the two strategies has been quite dramatic. When you don't establish effective eye contact with your audience, you quickly lose them to the bouts of distraction and impatience.

    It is a true fact that the people who don't know how to speak and don't know which techniques they must use, will do all of those brilliant points.

    Communication is about human connection. Being able to communicate effectively is one of the best life habits. Good listening is among the most important principles of great communication. It is common for most people to listen not with the intent of understanding, but with the intent of replying. Listening with the intent to understand is to fully understand that person intellectually and emotionally. You ensure that you understand by repeating back to them what they said and mirroring their emotions. By doing so, you help them structure their own thoughts and feelings. This type of listening can lead to truly open and trusting communication.

    I learned a while ago that most people don't really listen to what a person has to say. Speakers with either natural or trained voice dynamics can say complete bullcrap and people will swallow it. How things are said change the way the content is understood. Even if somebody says the most fascinating things in the world, but with a dull voice, he won't be listened by most. People assume that dull voice comes from a person who doesn't believe what he's saying, so any message is lost.

      For the average, yes. Though I've listened to many Noam Chomsky talks and found him quite interesting while others find him unbearable to listen to. Not everyone is influenced by obvious fluff and pretention of presence. Perhaps Trump is a good speaker, but if you listen to what he says you realize quickly that he's an idiot. He leaves no room for guessing. Yet, millions of Americans love him. Obama was a great orator, which lends itself to his popularity across the board, except those who will simply despise a Democrat for being one even if in practice he was right of center.

    I’m an engineer working for a large Telecom company and my employer spend every years a substantial budget on softskill training including efficient communication. Honestly, in the beginning as a young engineer I found those mandatory courses very annoying. When I become a Sr. eng. I had to took leadership courses as well. I was more interested by technical training. I change company after 15 years of services, and I am chock the lack of communication skills in my new work environment coz my new employer doesn’t invest on his employees training. I get several compliments by my colleagues as they thought I am a natural leader...which is absolutely false. I learn a lot from courses and I see the benefits at my last job when everyone knows the basic of how to clearly communicate and how to make it efficient. In my last job, I use to present recommendations on a VIce President committee monthly . As a french person, I was taught by our corporate communication coach to do some lips exercices as English need to have a more relax mouth for the pronunciation. Lol.
