Announcing TED Masterclass: TED’s official public speaking course — TED Blog

Many of the leaders I coach and work with want to improve their public speaking skills and abilities. TED’s official public speaking course may be a great opportunity for many of you to learn from other leaders who have experienced success with their presentations. I am always looking for growth in this area as well, and the course looks like fun!

Flex Your Inner Leader: Strike a Power Pose Like Wonder Woman and Enjoy!

We have all heard about the importance of body language, but have you ever used a Power Pose to boost your self-concept?  I recently used this amazing TED Talk, by Social Psychologist Amy Cuddy, with a group of hospital leaders.  Dr. Cuddy talks about the power of body language as it relates to interacting with others but also as it influences your internal beliefs and behaviors:

“Our nonverbals govern how we think and feel about ourselves.”

Amy explains the science of nonverbals (body language) but also offers practical solutions you can use immediately to boost your self-concept and leadership presence.  Get ready to flex your Inner Leader.   Strike a pose like Wonder Woman and enjoy the instant change to your body and mind.

Go Wild with Power Posing!

-Dr. Connie
