289 – Successful Body Language

David discusses Amy Cuddy’s research and TED presentation on body language. Amy Cuddy’s research on body language reveals that we can change other peoples perceptions and even our own body chemistry simply by changing our body position. Why you should listen Amy Cuddy wasn’t supposed to become a successful scientist. In fact, she wasn’t even supposed to finish her undergraduate degree. Early in her college career, Cuddy suffered a severe head injury in a car accident, and doctors said she would struggle to fully regain her mental capacity and finish her undergraduate degree. But she proved them wrong. Today, Cuddy is a professor and researcher at Harvard Business School, where she studies how nonverbal behavior and snap judgments affect people from the classroom to the boardroom. And her training as a classical dancer (another skill she regained after her injury) is evident in her fascinating work on “power posing” — how your body position influences others and even your own brain.   Useful Links: TED Presentation   Todays Quotes:  “What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear a word that you’re saying” “Communication and feelings are 55% body language, 38% tone and only 7% words”   Today’s Songs: Rock that Body – The Black Eyed Peas Your Body – Christina Aguilera B.O.D.Y – VIXX Your Body – Pretty Ricky Your Body Is a Wonderland – John Mayer  ...
