Practice Powerful Body Language
I am enamored with this Ted Talk from Amy Cuddy:
It’s 22 minutes long but worth every minute, so carve out a bit of quiet and take it all in.
As a podcaster and coach who spends a lot of time on the phone, I keep a mirror at my desk so that I can monitor my expression. I know that I sound friendlier and more engaged when I smile – even though no one can see it. That’s because they can hear it in my voice.
Now, I’m going to be watching for other physical cues. Am I sitting ‘tight’ and projecting weakness that will show up in my work projects? Or am I sitting wide and loose, bringing my best to every interaction and task?
