Your body language reveals a lot about you, but can you change it to reframe people’s perceptions of you and, ultimately, alter your personality? Social psychologist Amy Cuddy addresses this question by explaining the power of nonverbal behavior. She passionately discusses her research and offers useful tips to help individuals change their lives in meaningful ways. In 2015, fellow academics questioned Cuddy’s findings, particularly the ability of “power poses” to alter hormone levels, and the conversation is ongoing within the scientific community. Nevertheless, Cuddy’s presentation will inspire all who seek a simple method to boost their confidence and feel more empowered.
In this summary, you will learn
- How your body language influences other people’s perceptions of you,
- How it affects your mind and hormones, and
- How “power posing” can help you “fake it till you become it.”
