President's Message

Jennifer S. Romano
WLALA President 2014-2015

Have you ever tried “power poses” before making an important court appearance, going into a client pitch, or entering a job interview? After watching a TED Talk by Amy Cuddy, a professor at Harvard Business School, I am persuaded to give this a try.

In her TED talk, Dr. Cuddy explains that by engaging in “power poses” for two minutes before an important event, you can make yourself feel more powerful and be perceived by others as more powerful as well. Click HERE for the link to the full TED talk. I will leave the science to Dr. Cuddy and her colleagues, but the general finding is that by outstretching your arms, standing or sitting tall, and generally taking up space, you can increase your testosterone levels and decrease cortisol levels. You can do this in private, before you walk into your important meeting. And, after your poses, you will appear more authoritative, comfortable, confident and passionate. This of course may be particularly helpful for women, whose stature and voice often seem weaker compared to their male counterparts or adversaries.
