Bad and Good Workplace Culture
Activity 2: Showing up with Power in the Workplace
In Lesson One’s Podcast, I made a brief reference, at the end, to the book Presence by Amy Cubby and the Wonder Woman Pose. This pose along with some others has the ability to increase your confidence in the workplace. I want you to practice a few high power poses for a few minutes daily before meeting with others and notice if you feel any different. Send me an email and tell me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Power Pose Number 1
Try this pose at your next Presentation if you have some intimidating or critical colleagues in the room. Even try it when speaking to someone at their desk in the office who makes you feel uncomfortable.
2. Power Pose Number 2 and 3
Sit at your desk like Oprah with your feet up in the privacy of your office when you feel like you do not have control over things, people or projects under your watch. And do not be afraid to pull out a Mick Jagger power pose the next time you want to give yourself a pat on the back before you begin your presentation.
3. Power Pose Number 4
My favourite…the Wonder Woman/Man pose. Go to the bathroom and stand in front of a mirror ( or do it in the elevator on your way into the office) and Wonder Woman/Man up just before you next big meeting. Trust me it works.
