EP015: The Science of Confident Body Language and Leadership

Are you looking for advice on confident body language and leadership? Do you want to appear more confident as a leader? Studies have shown that by making slight changes to your body language and by using high-power poses, you can increase your level of confidence and feel more powerful as a leader. 

In this episode, I talk about a popular study on power poses, conducted by Amy Cuddy, Dana Carney and Andy Yap in 2010. And I relate this study back to leadership and explain why using high-power poses can help you look and feel more confident as a leader. 

High-power poses are great for when you’re facing high-pressure situations, difficult conversations, or stressful events so you can tap into your confidence and project it externally to others.
