In this episode, you are in for a treat. Not only will you meet Susan Morris, a dynamic speaker and coach who can help you up your career ladder, but you’ll also be a witness as she takes host David Otey through a simple yet surprising demonstration of the mind-body connection. When it comes to building your confidence, you don’t want to go on stage until you’ve heard what Susan Morris has to say.
Susan cites 2014 research by Deborah Gruenfeld, a professor of leadership and organization at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business, who posits that your posture doesn’t just reflect your level of confidence, insecurity, or anything else. Instead, your posture sends messages to your brain that tells you how to feel. If you need to feel confident, you want your posture to send your brain that message of standing tall. Be sure to check out how she has David demonstrate this—unrehearsed—during the episode!
