Power Posing, “Faking it until you become it” By Amy Cuddy


Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves.

Amy Cuddy presents a compelling argument as to how we can change how we are perceived but also, arguably more importantly, what we believe about ourselves.
