“Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. Social psychologist Amy Cuddy shows how “power posing” — standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don’t feel confident — can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain, and might even have an impact on our chances for success.”

If we know how to use our body language in an appropriate manner, it could influence various people in everyday life, for example it could make leading and managing your employees easier. Not only employees, but body language could help us improve the way we communicate with all stakeholders thus increasing the strength of these relationships.

“Amy Cuddy’s research on body language reveals that we can change other people’s perceptions — and even our own body chemistry — simply by changing body positions.”
