The Voice and Body Effects‘ System, shortly VaBe-System®, is a complete coaching concept that has been developed and patented by Elena Tecchiati. It considers communication factors that influence each other and are aimed to improve the personal development and to reach personal goals in life.

VaBe-System® can be used in order to: 

  • Help to design and frame successful presentations and speeches
  • To communicate effectively in your system
  • To achieve awareness of the effect you have on others and to optimize it
  • To achieve more self-confidence
  • To increase your self-esteem

Factors that are taken into consideration:

  • Personal identity
  • Professional and personal goals (short and long term)
  • Intention and purposes (in your speech and communication situation)
  • Posture and body language (nonverbal communication)
  • Communication and contents (verbal Communication)
  • Voice qualitiy (paraverbal communication)
  • Breathing techniques
  • Articulation and speech technique
  • Appearance and outfit

Background of the VaBe-System®

  „VaBe-System® is different from other concepts because it also takes outfit and appearance into consideration. In addition to this voice, language and communication technique is the effective way to show your emotion and to communicate effectively“ Elena Tecchiati   VaBe-System® is based on different theories, models and methods coming from different disciplines:

  • Social psychology (e.g. Social Facilitation, First Impression Bias)
  • Emotion psychology (e.g. emotions und evolution theory by Darwin)
  • Communication psychology (e.g. symbolic interactionism, Systemic-Interaktionism by Watzlawick, Uncertainty Reduction Theory)
  • Organisation psychology (e.g. Motivation, Leadership-Theories)
  • Sociology (e.g. Impression Management)
  • Systemic Coaching (e.g. the types of questions)
  • AAP® (Phonation adapted tot he breathing rhythm by Coblenzer-Muhar)
  • Breathing technique by Dr. Parow


These are the most important assumptions in this method:

  • Behind every communication situation there is a purpose
  • We form the reality in our communication
  • Our voice exudes more messages than just the verbal message we say
  • You can train your voice depending on your goals and purposes
  • You can train the coherent and harmonious interaction between voice and body
  • Everybody learns the most about him/herself comparing self-perception and how others see him/her
  • Body language has a weakening or intensifying action on feelings
  • Emotions, moods and motivation are related
  • Nonverbal and paraverbal communication have influence on the the communication partner (listener) and on the speaker
  • Every communication situation is reflexive: words have influence on the speaker and on the communication partner
  • You cannot not communicate (by Watzlawick)
  • People want to be taken into consideration when you talk to them
  • Stimm-, Atem- und Sprechtechnik sind ein Weg, um Emotionen zu zeigen, stimmig zu kommunizieren und Ziele zu erreichen
  • Actractiveness increases your credibility
  • If you feel comfortable you can communicate better and more effectively
