strike a pose


Today I thought I’d share another one of my favorite Ted Talks. In it, Amy Cuddy talks about how our body language can change how we feel about ourselves.

Last summer, I completed a 10-month leadership training program which literally rocked my world in so many ways. But one of the things they had us do early on was to have us find our “power movement” (not what they called it, but for our purposes here it makes more sense calling it that).

And we used our power movements to recover from fear, anxiety, doubt, etc.

So when I first saw Amy Cuddy’s talk, I was like: “No way! There’s science behind this stuff!” (and for me that’s always an awesome discovery because I love it when the spirit-stuff and science stuff come together with the same message).

Anyway, here’s the awesome news: you can have a power pose too. For free. Without the 10-month program. Just watch this…

Amy Cuddy: Your body language shapes who you are

Now, go strike a pose.

Have a great weekend!

  1. Thank you! for sharing this video of Ann Cuddy. As you say, there’s actually science behind this intuitive knowing! I LOVE her advice to give it away to those who feel powerless because they are usually the people who have no/fewer resources. And this is free and requires no moving parts except one’s own body. Will use this myself today. Thanks again.
