Professor Amy Cuddy’s fascinating experimental research reveals how your nonverbal behavior not only affects how others see you; it also affects how you see yourself, your testosterone and cortisol levels, risk tolerance, performance, and important life outcomes. Humans and non-humans express confidence and power through open, expansive postures, known as power poses (think: Wonder Woman). Power posing – for as little as two minutes before a stressful performance -- can actually alter an individual at the biological level, preparing the brain to perform well in high-stakes situations. Learn about the science behind this minimal self-nudge, and how it is being used in leadership training, athletic coaching, managing chronic pain, reducing test anxiety, debate preparation, confronting prejudice, anti-bullying interventions, and even horse training. In Cuddy’s session you’ll discover how your body shapes your mind, your mind shapes your behavior, and your behavior shapes your outcomes.
