What is presence? -- Believing and owning your story -- Stop preaching, start listening: how presence begets presence -- I don't deserve to be here -- How powerlessness shackles the self (and how power sets it free) -- Slouching, steepling, and the language of the body -- Surfing, smiling, and singing ourselves to happiness -- The body shapes the mind (so starfish up!) -- How to pose for presence -- Self-nudging: how tiny tweaks lead to big changes -- Fake it till you become it.
Examines how to access our personal power through adjusting both our mindset and our posture. Offers stories, techniques and research to illustrate how we can liberate ourselves from fear in high-pressure moments and connect with others.
