Actionable Do:

  • Practice power dynamics. Expand and open up your body as it is a sign of power.
  • Fake it (power posing dynamics) until you become it.
  • Power posing for 2 minutes before situations where you’ll be judged by your presence.

Actionable Don’t:

  • Don’t crouch down and shrink because it’s a sign of powerlessness.

  • Our non-verbal communication govern how other people think and feel about us.
  • Our non-verbal communication also govern how we think and feel about ourself.
  • We know our mind change our body, but our body also changes our mind.
