The Self-Perception report is a deeper understanding of your unique communication style.

How does it work?

SoundWave Brilliance 3 Sample Report

Your first SoundWave voice is:
to articulate – the brilliance of the teller of stories

At its highest level, we tend to frame our communication in one of three broad styles; asking, telling and suggesting.

*an extract from the SoundWave Brilliance 3 report

We each possess all the SoundWave voices
to a greater or lesser degree, but often we
have a preference for some over others. In
some cases our voices remain underdeveloped.

But to have ‘articulate’ as a particular
brilliance – wow!

To articulate, to tell the story, is to narrate
the world around you in a way that can
explain, describe and illuminate facts and
ideas to others, drawing them in, capturing
their attention and imagination and
imparting a sense of belonging.

Skilful articulators create a reputation as
being quietly influential. The impartial and
judicious tone of articulation serves to
faciliate conversation between people.
