Stand up and fake it if you have to!

Amy Cuddy‘s TED Talk is a couple of years old but it is still completely relevant. Her research indicates that your posture and body language do more than send signals to others—they influence how we feel about ourselves. So stand up tall, shoulders back, head held high, put a smile on your face and do your thing!

I also listened to Julian Treasure‘s TED Talk titled “How to speak so that people want listen“. The two talks play well together.

  1. Being a psychologist, this was most interesting to me. What I learned about body language, I actually learned in speech communication classes at the undergraduate level. Great information that also resonated with me and my own personal experiences. Thanks for much for this! Penny M.
