Presence: Bringing Your Boldest Self to Your Biggest Challenges by Amy Cuddy | Summary & Highlights - NOT ORIGINAL BOOK
Amy Cuddy is known around the world for her 2012 TED Talk, which is the second-most-viewed talk in TED’s history. She is a professor and researcher at Harvard Business School who studies how nonverbal behavior and snap judgments influence people.
Her research has been published in top academic journals and covered by NPR, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, The Economist, Wired, Fast Company, and more.
In Presence, we learn how the nature of the poses we make influence how powerful or powerless we felt and how willing we are then to take risks, for more money, even changing our hormone levels (testosterone and cortisol) associated with confidence and anxiety, respectively.
This relationship exists regardless of gender, professional position, or cultural background. Poses and posture effect how we feel, think about ourselves, make us more likely to assert ourselves, seize opportunities, increases feelings of physical strength.
Power poses toughen you to physical pain, allowing us to achieve presence during our biggest challenges. This also works mentally, just by picturing a Wonder Woman or Starfish Up pose in our minds.
Let your body tell you that you are powerful so you can become authentically yourself.
