Claude Stein

Janet worked with Claude Stein, an internationally recognized Multi-Platinum award winning voice and performance coach, providing instructional design on a program, “The Art of Being You.” This transformational program for individuals and groups allows the participants to ‘find their true voice.’

The use of our voice can be released not only in day-to-day conversations, but also in speaking, singing, or writing. This unique program allows us to ‘take a risk’ to find that ‘authentic voice,’ and Leadership Presence. Whatever thoughts we’re having directly affect the position of the larynx, the dynamics, the melodies in our tone, in our speech; the pacing, the rhythm, the body, the breath.

“The Art of Being You,’ explores these aspects and finds the true voice in each of us. See
