During the economic recession, dentists saw a rise in patients suffering from tooth-related injuries. Many were reporting teeth-grinding and jaw-clenching as a result of the stressful times. Although the recession has been over for years, entrepreneurs know that the anxiety of running an enterprise never stops. Unfortunately, these stress-related dental habits eventually harm our speech, and thus, how we communicate.

In this Google Hangout, Arthur Joseph teaches us how to conquer these challenges by walking us through vocal empowerment rituals.

As the founder of Vocal Awareness Institute, Joseph discusses and demonstrates rather unique exercises that can help any professional harness their inner voice to achieve communication mastery. The vocal and speech coach to the stars (including Tony Robbins, Emmett Smith and various athletes and CEOs) believes that the true benefits of vocal awareness teaches you how to strengthen your leadership presence.
