Presence is Amy Cuddy's study on the power of body language. She shows that by standing tall and strong, you can find the inner power to believe in yourself, and can harness it for whatever life throws at you.

Ever tried standing like Wonder Woman in the mirror before a big date? Well, maybe you should - apparently it helps. By striking a power pose, you are telling your body that you're powerful, and by telling your body, you're also – without realizing it – telling your mind. So by puffing out your chest and sticking your hands on your hips, you might actually find the inner confidence you never knew you had.
Harvard professor Amy Cuddy suggests that we don't need to reinvent ourselves to utilize our presence. Instead, we need to tweak our body language. Through this, we can influence our behavior and reinvent ourselves.
