Amy Cuddy brings up interesting points and anecdotes about nonverbal communication. She looks at power dynamics expressed through body language and the connection between how we think and feel about ourselves and how others judge us based on our nonverbal communication. As a Speaking Fellow, I am constantly aware of power dynamics in the classroom. Who talks? Which students feel more assertive and more confident while others shy away from sharing their opinion? This talk includes a discussion about the origin of such power dynamics on a physiological level. Presenting yourself is about much more than what you say and how you say it. Body language makes a huge impact–both consciously and subconsciously–on the way that we perceive others.
