Secret musician's business for corporates

The Explore Your Voice Challenge

creating your unique voice...

An entertaining 60 minute live experience 

for your teams and leaders

Everything is a performance. Don't believe us?  Ok, try delivering your next report to a room full of people in a flat, emotionless, monotone voice without moving a muscle. (You may even know people who do this already).

Everything is a performance and during the Explore Your Voice Challenge we will show you why you need to think that way with your teams. This is what we call - 'Secret Musician's Business For Corporates'.

However, to understand the dynamics of performance in a business environment first you need to get a feel for a type of risk that all great musicians are required to master - Emotional Risk.

There are many types of risks in business - Competitive, Operational, Legal, Reputational, Stategic and more.  What is not commonly understood is the most important risk of all to the individual team member - Emotional Risk

Emotional Risk is the personal risk of public failure. It's central to the idea that individuals need to feel secure within their group and peers before they will take the personal risk of stepping forward to lead.

Most world class musicians are experts in emotional risk management. It's not something that we necessarily think about much of the time.  It's a more subliminal process, but it is essential to master it for top level performance.

Among other things we developed the Explore Your Voice™ Challenge as a way for teams to explore the parameters of emotional risk by exploring their own voices. We are at our most exposed when we are expressing ourselves personally and verbally. Our priority interface with others is through our voice.  The EYV Challenge show introduces teams to the importance of vocal authority, managing their emotional risk,  generating team support and introducing new ideas on the fly.

One of the best team leadership events we have experienced at EY.  The ’Explore Your Voice Challenge’ is a unique music based , highly engaging and thoroughly entertaining program that had our teams excited to venture out of their comfort zone and emotionally fulfilled with the final result. A tremendously rewarding and enlightening experience for my team."

What happens during the Explore Your Voice Challenge?

During the challenge, teams are tasked with producing and recording a cooperative musical piece where they will have to pool their skills and rely on each other in order to succeed. Participants quickly realise how much power they can have in their voice to change not only their own, but the hearts and minds of others.

  • Ideal for all large organisations looking for a unique learning activity 

  • Specifically developed for seminars, conferences, training programs and in-house development days.

  • Introduces the Explore Your Voice Performance Dynamics Workshop (6 week course)

Guided by a team of world class vocal coaches, musicians and studio producers, participants experience how to quickly adapt to engender an emotionally safe work environment for team members to help overcome the essentially challenging requirement of creating a complete musical performance with their team in 1 hour. (Can be longer if required)

Teams are introduced to the skills of managing emotional risk and the role that risk plays in team support and the realisation of personal courage. They will need to negotiate their roles and manage the expectations of themselves and their team mates. This is based on the high performance skills developed by profession musicians.

Explore Your Voice™ Challenge increases:

  • Expressiveness and individual courage within teams
  • Confidence and trust to come forward
  • Vocal Authority and how to command
  •  Real time decision making under pressure
  • Team dynamics and fluidity
  • Initiative and adaptability in challenging situations
  • Overall sense of achievement and importantly the belief that a natural fear can be overcome
