How your body language affects what people think of you and who you become
Do you ever find yourself in a situation where you wish you felt more confident? Where you really want to be able to come across as more confident, capable, professional, comfortable, authentic and engaging, then this is a great Ted Talk video to watch!
Amy Cuddy shows how simple things about our body language not only shape what others think and feel about us, but also shapes who we become.
I know from personal experience how true Amy’s advice is. Since I was a child, I had an acute fear of public speaking, but I knew that I had to somehow overcome this phobia in order to help more women across the UK through my talks and my events. Notice what she says about “Fake it until you BECOME it”…it really does work, I speak from personal experience. I went from complete paralysis and never dreaming I’d stand before an audience to giving a Toastmasters talk next week on my own 7-step model for engaging the hearts and minds of your audience!
Whether it’s for networking, talking to the bank, going for an interview, giving a talk, getting a promotion, running a workshop, dealing with difficult people, going on a date…what you learn in this video can apply in any situation.
Hope you enjoy it!
