Overview

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.

"That the body affects the mind is, fair to say, incontestable. And it's doing so in ways that either facilitate or impede our ability to bring our authentic best selves to our biggest challenges."
