In Work Readiness on Thursday, July 9th, our class went down to the SPA Tech Center to work with Ms. Taylor from Workforce Partnership. We watched the TED Talk "Your Body Language Shapes Who You" are by Amy Cuddy on body language and presentation. The video informed us of the impact our body language has on first impressions. The video informed us that our body language is something we are subconsciously judged by, which is why ¨power postures” can be helpful to ¨fake it till we make it.¨ However the true aim is for us to ¨take it till we are it.” The tip is that our different ¨power postures¨ help us raise our self-esteem and can help change our mentality. This then increases our value when going in for an interview or meeting someone because our posture shows confidence. After, we wrote a paper based on this information. You can read my paper and a few of my peers' papers below.
