Body language not only affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. I was listening to this Ted talk by Amy Cuddy, where she mentions how our bodies govern how we think and feel about ourselves. Everyone talks about the importance of “body language,” but few people understand how much of an impact it actually has — not just in the way others perceive us, but in terms of how we actually perform. Certain “power poses” immediately change our body chemistry. And these changes affect the way we do our job and interact with other people. Our bodies do change our mind.
Take away from this session: Next time when you are going for an interview or a meeting where you will be evaluated, try a “power pose” for 2 mins before you start and see the difference for yourself.
When you pretend to be powerful, you are more likely to actually feel powerful.
Think about it!!!
