Mariette Richardson's new book, "She Speaks Like A Leader," is not just a book; it's a pocket-sized reminder of a woman's rightful place in the boardroom. It's a guide on how to navigate that room with unwavering confidence and to ensure your voice is heard. It's a tool to reshape the future opportunities for women. The book covers topics such as emotional control, physical presence, and charisma.
In Mariette's own words, "This book is designed to heighten and elevate a woman in her position, instilling the knowledge and confidence that stem from how she presents herself – from the way she lifts her chin to her feet, from her gestures to her voice. This book goes into detail about how your body posture affects you and why it's so important to pay attention to every part of communication. It covers everything from what your fragrance says about you, how to stand, how to gesture, how to speak, how to make eye contact and more. It's more than just a book; it's a transformational guide.
In a time when the definition of a woman's role is constantly questioned, "She Speaks Like A Leader" addresses the many issues surrounding women's strength and self-identity. This book empowers women to take pride in their voice, their position, and their identity, ensuring they never lose themselves in the corporate world. It's not just a book; it's a tool for change."
Perimenopause and Menopause can also have a significant impact on a woman’s performance at work. Dr. Kalentzi British Menopause Specialist Accredited by the Menopause Society advises on how to manage emotions and anger which often comes across in a higher pitch, screechy voice. The book highlights how emotions can affect one’s voice and recommends techniques for resetting and regaining control. It offers guidance on how to focus on existing skills, build confidence, and refine one's overall approach to leadership.
What is more intriguing according to Mariette is that the female voice has changed a lot in the last 50 years. Since the 70’s, women's voices have on average dropped by 23 Hz however, there is still an octave in the difference of pitch between men and women. According to a recent study from the University of Southern Australia, women's voices have changed a lot over the recent decades. They've become deeper through a natural evolution process as more women over time have elevated to leadership roles.
Mariette decided to write this book because she recognized the additional hurdles women face in reaching leadership positions. She asserts that women can use their natural characteristics and femininity to their advantage in their leadership endeavors. The book addresses the issue of imposter syndrome and stresses the significance of the voice as a tool in the workplace. It explores the concept that women do not need to emulate men in order to achieve success. The book also highlights the importance of conveying strength and self-assurance without sounding brusque or patronizing, a concept that women have faced for many years.
