Social Psychologist; Associate Professor and Hellman Faculty Fellow, Harvard Business School
Amy Cuddy is a social psychologist and professor at Harvard Business School. She studies how body language speaks and more specifically, how adopting certain postures affects performance — in job interviews and public speeches, for example — and changes thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and physiology. Cuddy’s TED Talk on this topic has been viewed over 24 million times. She was one of TIME magazine’s 2012 Game Changers, Business Insider’s 50 Women Who Are Changing the World in 2013, and in 2014 was named a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum. Her book Presence: Bringing Your Boldest Self to Your Biggest Challenges is due to be released in fall 2015.
