Lead better by improving your posture? (video)

By Bill Springer on December 3, 2014

What if you could boost your confidence and be a better leader simply by altering your posture and the way you carry yourself?

Well, according to Dr. Amy Cuddy, Harvard Business School Associate Professor, social psychologist, and Linkage faculty member, there’s hard science behind the idea that simply altering your posture—uncrossing your arms, standing tall, etc.—to convey confidence (even when we don’t feel confident) can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain, and actually help you feel more confident and be more successful.

Watch the video to see how it works.
