Episode 20: Amy Cuddy – Presence


Your success is dependent on your ability to show up powerfully in any situation. But most of us can be thrown off our game pretty easily – sometimes even by the mere presence of another person. Enter Amy Cuddy, social psychologist and associate professor at Harvard Business School, who offers a crazy simple, surprisingly effective path to standing in our power . . . always. Amy’s TED talk on the subject is the second most viewed TED Talk in history (with millions of views). In our conversation about her most recent book, Presence: Bringing Your Boldest Self to Your Biggest Challenges, Amy teaches us the research-based path to showing up with power and confidence. Listen here.

    I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this particular podcast with Amy. There are so many little nuggets of truth in there; it made me write them down (and also tweet). Thanks so much for this. I’ve learnt so much today and any day with learning is a great day!

    I like your podcast. Can you make available a transcript of your podcasts. A transcript helps refresh and it takes lot less time than to actually hear the podcast again.
