Amy Cuddy delves into her thoughts on “Presence,” which she describes as a calm ferocity, a demeanor that exudes confidence and enthusiasm yet lacks arrogance. Having Presence can be truly life changing. Cuddy stresses the relationship between posture and Presence, as our body positioning speaks volumes to both those around us and to our own brains. She claims that not only does posture impact how we perceive others, but also how we perceive ourselves. Therefore, we can develop authentic confidence and Presence by making a conscious effort to improve our posture. The book includes diagrams of powerful postures and what they signify.
“Presence is confidence without arrogance.”
