Presence: Bringing Your Boldest Self to Your Biggest Challenges - Amy Cuddy

 

 

I am sucker for books about becoming or cultivating our best selves, so I had no choice but to be sucked in by this one.  After cursing at my alarm clock today, I spent two minutes with my arms up in the air, thinking, "I am going to conquer this day!"  I'm not sure I would go so far as to claim conquership, but my interactions with other people were satisfying today.  Assuming power poses--and the related strategies Cuddy describes--are simple, but I think they have merit.

 

I will note that I prefer the arms-up-in -the-air posture represented on the book cover.  But if you prefer the "Wonder Woman" hands on hips, go for it!
