Amy Cuddy: Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are

One day I was in a total funk. I was dealing with a sense of rejection after hearing a number of “no’s” from client prospects. So I called a colleague to vent. It went something like this.

“No one likes me. Blah blah blah.”

Being the tough-lovin’ business coach that she is, she suggested that I view this video in its completion before making the next call. The video changed my entire mood for the rest of the day. No’s became yes’s. I became empowered in just that moment. There is something to be said about how we stand and hold ourselves when we are front of people or even when we are on the phone. I honestly never thought of how I stood before making sales calls (or even an idea pitch).

Body language can definitely speak volumes whether it’s seen or not. It comes thru our voice.

So, did you feel like sitting up straight after watching the video?
