We were away this weekend and had a three hour drive last night in order to get home. Over the weekend, some of the conversations were about favorite Tedtalks. One of the current favorites in Amy Cuddy's 21 minute talk on power poses and their ability to create confidence. I'm guessing that some of you will have already watched this talk because almost 10 MILLION people have already! This talk is funny, engaging, and you will love Amy Cuddy, especially when she shares some of the challenges she has faced in life.
So today, I spent the suggested two minutes in a power pose with my daughters. We giggled as we spent our two minutes with our arms up in victory pose. I'll let you know if I feel my confidence hormones begin to kick in. Seriously, this talk would be a great one to share with students for many reasons--if you have time, tune in and join the millions of people out there who may be boosting their confidence with a very simple strategy.
