“Our bodies change our minds, and our minds can change our behavior, and our behavior can change our outcomes.” - Amy Cuddy
“When we think of nonverbals, we think of how we judge others. … We tend to forget, though, the other audience that's influenced by our nonverbals: ourselves.” - Amy Cuddy
Power is that intangible thing that so many people strive for. For some people, feeling a sense of control -- over themselves, others, situations or all of the above -- is a natural thing. For others, it doesn't come as easy.
But for those who already project power and competence to the world through their bodies, there is another, perhaps harder challenge: communicating warmth.
And as Cuddy explains, warmth may actually be a truer, deeper source of power to begin with.
Please note that the TED video presenter will not be attending the event (unless the presenter catches this open invite or we have some influential members).
This Meetup works like a book club, but the discussion topics are clips from TED (www.ted.com), "Ideas Worth Spreading". During each Meetup, we'll watch an approx. 20 minute TED talk and then spend an hour discussing the ideas presented.
