  • Amy Cuddy – TED – Your body language shapes who you are

Career, Insight, TED

“Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. Social psychologist Amy Cuddy shows how “power posing” — standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don’t feel confident — can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain, and might even have an impact on our chances for success.”

I just had to share this brilliant TED talk by Amy Cuddy.  I have often used this myself and with clients to shift how we feel before a critical meeting, presentation, interview or speech.  It really has a powerful impact.  It takes us from “Inside-Out to Outside-In” thinking and feeling.

We have long believed we need to change how we think in order to feel differently.  Amy shows you how you can change your brain chemistry – and ultimately how you feel by using the very simple technique of changing your body language.

And another inspiring video to get you thinking – “You see the world through how you feel“.

Well worth a shot 🙂
