Finding Your Voice Workshop
Team Building available for hire, based in Victoria
Many organizations today have turned to workplace innovation programs in the conviction that creativity is one key to competitive survival. And organizations know their ability to innovate lies in the creativity and abilities of their people. The individual needs to understand and adopt internal thinking processes that increase the potential for new thinking. Organizations have to do the same.
Diva, voice teacher, speaker and performer Tania de Jong AM, will help participants to find and free their natural voice in this inspiring workshop for anybody who needs to communicate and present more effectively. This is a brilliant team building activity designed to heighten wellbeing, creativity, emotional expression and self awareness. Make your presence felt through sound. Hear yourself become a leader. Be aware of the sounds others are making when they communicate. Learn to lead and follow through the sense of sound!!
The workshop will offer a powerful leadership development experience in which you will discover your own voice; learn to use it effectively to lead and to experience the application and importance of voice in presenting, influencing and being heard.
Learn to sing in harmony together and transform your team through the power of music and the human voice. You can even write a special song and sing it together!

"Tania de Jong managed to challenge and inspire us to think beyond the usual bounds of leadership style by taking us on a journey of breath, chant and song. It affirmed for many that if allowed, creativity can and will 'create' great leaders." Committee for Melbourne participant
"It was refreshing to do something completely different and to listen to Tania's magnificent voice. Tania was also a very engaging speaker who clearly demonstrated that encouraging creativity in the workplace results in benefits for both the organisation and employees." Committee for Melbourne participant
"Can you pass on our appreciation for demonstrating that creativity in business can actually work. Although a short session, it was apparent to me that Tania's passion, energy and initiative can flow through and bring out the creative side in everyone and can assist in improving all aspects of a business, irrespective of its field of expertise. Interactive leadership workshops are always more productive and enjoyable and this one was a belter." Committee for Melbourne
