Amy Cuddy

Social psychologist. Professor, Harvard business school.

Believes your body language shapes who you are.

Thinks 80% of our evaluations of people are based on two characteristics – warmth and competence.

“Unless and until we feel personally powerful, we cannot achieve presence, and all the social power in the world won’t compensate for its absence.”

Believes using high power poses before an interaction can increase the success of your interaction.

Thinks we want to see others as trustworthy, but we want them to see us as competent or strong.

“Don’t fake it till you make it. Fake it till you become it.”

Believes most New Year’s resolutions do more harm than good.

Thinks the key to making a change is to do it a little bit at a time.
