Doing Evidence Facilitate

A mountain of evidence shows that our bodies are pushing, shaping, even leading our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. That the body affects the mind is, it's fair to say, incontestable. And it's doing so in ways that either facilitate or impede our ability to bring our authentic best selves to our biggest challenges.

- Amy Cuddy

Through Own Other

Although our body language governs the way other people perceive us, our body language also governs how we perceive ourselves and how those perceptions become reinforced through our own behavior, our interactions, and even our physiology.

- Amy Cuddy

Forward About Access

Authenticity doesn't just mean you're not filtering what you're saying, it's about being able to know and access the best parts of yourself and bring them forward.

- Amy Cuddy

Hire Come Them

A lot of politicians, not surprisingly, hire consultants to help them with their nonverbals, presence, generally how they come across.

- Amy Cuddy

Go Which Involves

Being a comfortable public speaker, which involves easily being able to go off-script, strongly signals competence.

- Amy Cuddy

Big Very Some

Entrepreneurs are more likely to be successful if they're able to be present while pitching their ideas. It's about maintaining presence during big challenges - very high stakes moments with some component of social judgment. Everyone has them, whether they're entrepreneurs or not.

- Amy Cuddy

Mind Body Shapes

The mind shapes the body, and the body shapes the mind.

Strength Your Quickly

People judge you really quickly, at first just on your facial features. There are two dimensions - warmth and competence. You can think of them as trustworthiness and strength. They're first judging you on warmth; evaluating whether or not you are trustworthy. That's much more important to them than whether or not you're competent.

- Amy Cuddy

Values Enough Them

I'm good enough; I'm smart enough. Self-affirmation is where people list their core values. These are things that really make them who they are.

- Amy Cuddy

Going Dealing Deal

If you're going into finance, you might be dealing with a lot of sexism and a lot of alpha behavior. How are you going to deal with that? How are you going to feel powerful and comfortable with being who you are?

- Amy Cuddy

Fact Reasons Checking

There are plenty of reasons to put our cellphones down now and then, not least the fact that incessantly checking them takes us out of the present moment and disrupts family dinners around the globe.

- Amy Cuddy

Very Likely Using

Politicians are very experienced - maybe too experienced - at using body language to signal power and competence. But what these politicians are much more likely to struggle with, or just neglect to do altogether, is communicate warmth and trustworthiness.

- Amy Cuddy

Smiling Practice Holding

Practice smiling by holding a pencil between your teeth for twenty minutes.

- Amy Cuddy

Feel Other About

Charisma seems to be more about the intoxicating quality that you have on other people, as opposed to presence, which is more about the self in relation to others, and how you feel you represented yourself in a situation, and how you were able to engage. So it's less about how others see you and more about how you see yourself.

- Amy Cuddy

Forward Own Powerlessness

Too many of us suffer from pervasive feelings of personal powerlessness. We have a terrible habit of obstructing our own paths forward, especially at the worst possible moments.

- Amy Cuddy

Practice Sometimes Bring

I sometimes work with a communications and media training firm called KNP Communications. It's nice to bring the research to the practitioners; I learn a lot watching how they put it into practice, and I know they like to be on top of what's happening on the research front.

- Amy Cuddy

Becoming Interacting

There is no one who is present all the time, but you work on becoming present when you are interacting with people who are working for you, being able to hear them without a sense of threat, to go into those meetings with confidence and not arrogance.

- Amy Cuddy

Want Feel Leaders

People want to feel understood by their leaders.

- Amy Cuddy

Selling Will Buy

You have to buy what you're selling. If you don't buy what you're selling, nobody will.

- Amy Cuddy

Over Lot Occasion

People have a lot of control over their ability to rise to the occasion and to show their best or their aspirational selves.
