When someone gets drunk and acts rude to you, what do you do? Maybe you're at a holiday party or home with your family, it can be a very delicate situation.
When handled correctly, it can position you as a confident leader. When handled poorly, it can escalate out of control!
Your voice, when properly used, is a powerful tool which can dramatically influence others, and even impact their behavior for your benefit. An authoritative voice incorporates the following characteristics:
---A resonant, low-pitched tone
---A comfortable yet varied rhythm of your speech
---Appropriate cadence of the delivery
---A confident, commanding voice quality
