I recently viewed a brief video by Harvard researcher, Amy Cuddy, about the power of your pose – how by simply practicing a ‘power pose’ before an interview or a performance or a speech you can increase your testosterone – your “power hormone”. This is more than just good posture (something we image consultants, as well as your mother :), talk about all the time.) It’s about confidence – displaying confidence and power through your body language, which then increases your power hormone, and helps you to achieve whatever it is you’re going for: a good performance, an excellent speech, a strong job interview, etc. She says it much better than I, so watch the video and let me know what you think. Then strike the pose!
