In our Train Your Brain for Success programs, we always share a fun tidbit on the importance of posture when it comes to boosting confidence and improving results.
There is a lot of research and articles out on the interwebs that discuss power poses so I’m not going to launch into a big dissertation, but suffice to say they work and they are fun to practice.
At the request of a client, I shot a brief tutorial on how to get yourself into a power pose.
I recommend that you get into position and hold it for a minimum of two minutes. Here’s a couple of instances when/where you should think about using the “Stand Like a Superhero” move:
Before speaking in front of a group of people
Before an interview
Before a performance review
Before asking your spouse for money
Before doing ANYTHING you think you are afraid of doing
Have fun, and if it works for you shoot me an email with a picture of you standing like a Superhero. Workshop attendees really like seeing people using this in real life!
