Before you Interview – Watch & Try!

Amy Cuddy’s research on body language reveals that we can change other people’s perceptions — and even our own body chemistry — simply by changing body positions. I recommend watching this TED talk at least twice, and trying this before your next interview, difficult 1:1, job review or salary negotiation, meeting a new colleague at work, key meeting, or any other important engagement. Bring on your best!
