I just revisited Amy Cuddy’s TED talk on power posing—it has almost 24 million views! That’s pretty powerful in itself!
Cuddy’s video demonstrates how our body language not only influences how others see us; it also influences how we see ourselves.
She illustrates how having a posture of power—standing tall, legs apart, hands on hips, a la Wonder Woman or Superman–can actually impact our levels of confidence and success.
This talk—and Cuddy’s work—is so powerful, that I’ve shared with many people I’ve coached who need a big dose of self-assurance before an important event.
Trust me—and them–it works!
