This talk made everyone cry at TEDGlobal, as Harvard Business School professor Amy Cuddy recounted the story of suffering a car accident aged 19 that landed her in rehab with a significantly decreased IQ. Read the post for the whole story—and its resonance for her even years later. Read it too to think about the impact of body language on success and a path in life. It was funny and interesting to see the audience (and one speaker, I’m looking at you, Clay Shirky) adopt the “power pose” routine throughout the rest of the conference. Interesting to observe in others—and interesting to witness the power even small gestures can make on oneself. This was such a lovely, perfect talk.
