You’ll want to sit up straight for this presentation, in which Amy Cuddy examines Power Posing – striking a pose that projects confidence – and its impact on leaders and followers alike. Cuddy’s discussion, “Connect, Then Lead,” wonders whether it’s better for a leader to be loved or feared, examines how leaders can strike a balance between showing warmth and strength, and looks at how Power Posing might improve the relationship between leaders and peers, groups, or even brands.

Amy Cuddy is an associate professor of business administration at Harvard University.
