Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are

Amy Cuddy, a social psychologist, discusses the power of body language, how it changes our social interactions and gives the audience a two-minute life hack that will change how they see themselves.

Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. Amy 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. She also explains when, and when not, to use a smiley face in an email.
