Personal Power and the Liberated Self: The Science of Individuality

Cutting-edge science reveals that if we adopt behaviors reflecting power and strength, we liberate ourselves from the fears and doubts that obstruct us. By redirecting our thoughts, actions, and even physiology, we free ourselves to be our best. Amy Cuddy, author of the upcoming book Presence, reveals the science underlying these and many other fascinating body-mind effects that help us in our most challenging moments. Todd Rose is a leader in the new "science of the individual." His soon-to-be-published book, The End of Average, draws from the latest psychological and neuroscience research to show that success is found in individual strengths and weaknesses that don't fit along any average curve. Cuddy and Rose discuss the fascinating intersections in their research and the implications for human potential.

Speakers: Amy Cuddy, L. Todd Rose
