Have you ever left a nerve-racking challenge and immediately
wished for a do over? Maybe after a job interview, a
performance, or a difficult conversation? The very moments
that require us to be genuine and commanding can instead
cause us to feel phony and powerless. Too often we approach
our lives' biggest hurdles with dread, execute them with
anxiety, and leave them with regret.
By accessing our personal power, we can achieve "presence,"
the state in which we stop worrying about the impression
we're making on others and instead adjust the impression
we've been making on ourselves. As Harvard professor Amy
Cuddy's revolutionary book reveals, we don't need to embark
on a grand spiritual quest or complete an inner
transformation to harness the power of presence. Instead, we
need to nudge ourselves, moment by moment, by tweaking our
body language, behavior, and mind-set in our day-to-day lives.
Amy Cuddy has galvanized tens of millions of viewers around
the world with her TED talk about "power poses." Now she
presents the enthralling science underlying these and many
other fascinating body-mind effects, and teaches us how to
use simple techniques to liberate ourselves from fear in
high-pressure moments, perform at our best, and connect with
and empower others to do the same.
Brilliantly researched, impassioned, and accessible,
Presence is filled with stories of individuals who learned
how to flourish during the stressful moments that once
terrified them. Every reader will learn how to approach
their biggest challenges with confidence instead of dread,
and to leave them with satisfaction instead of regret.
