Have you ever known a man or woman who stood out prominently as a leader and who was not possessed of a voice of real quality ? Think that question over. It does not necessarily mean that such a person had to have a tremendous, booming voice if that person were a man, or a sharp, commanding voice if a woman. The smoothest and quietest of tones might have been the ones that drew your attention. The individual might have a soft voice, but the odds are long that it would be amazingly effective, that it would draw your attention even if completely overwhelmed so far as volume is concerned, by others about it.
