Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are

In the spirit of tomorrow’s TEDxBentleyU event, I thought it was only right to share one of my personal favorite TED Talks. If you are preparing for an interview, about to give a presentation, or just generally interested in making good impressions, Amy Cullen’s Your body language shapes who you are is 21 minutes well spent.

In her talk, Amy explains the importance of body language not only on how others perceive you, but how you view yourself. After watching this, you will know the importance of “power posing” and how your posture impacts testosterone and cortisol levels in your brain — ultimately leading to successful.

Her philosophy? Don’t fake it ’til you make it. Fake it ’til you become it.
