Presence: Bringing Your Boldest Self to Your Biggest Challenges

by Amy Cuddy

Abstract

We often meet life's challenges with fear and anxiety. We fail to be our best and end up feeling regretful and powerless. In Presence, Amy Cuddy presents a scientifically grounded way to align our speech and nonverbal behavior with our beliefs, abilities, and values to produce a synchronized inner state that resonates and connects with others. In this way, we can capture the inner strength we need to successfully navigate life's most difficult situations. Filled with stories of people facing a range of challenges, from going on job interviews to asking someone out; scientific research on how our bodies change our minds; and revolutionary strategies like "power posing," Presence is a must-read for anyone yearning to project their true power.
