Power Posing to Increase Presentation Quality
Andy Biedlingmaier, Tufts M18 Student on Medical Education Elective
Humans and nonhuman primates use open and expansive postures to convey power. However, new research shows that these “high-power poses” not only communicate power, they also create it. Therefore, high-power posing can be used to boost presenter confidence, and consequently improve audience evaluation, during high-stakes presentations.
