2016. Cuddy’s highly-anticipated book, Presence: Bringing Your
Boldest Self to Your Biggest Challenges, has been named an Amazon

“Amy is one of the foremost thinkers on how our personal body language,
poise, and presence affect how others see us,” said Julie Zadow,
executive director of WorkHuman. “By helping people understand how to
liberate themselves from self-doubt, she has become a leading voice for
empowerment as a driver of personal performance and connection with
“Our bodies change our minds, and our minds can change our behavior, and
our behavior can change our outcomes. Embracing these truths at work can
dramatically change how people present themselves and how they interact
with and empower others,” said Cuddy. “These are key ingredients to
building a more human workplace, and I look forward to sharing this
research at WorkHuman 2016.”
Cuddy is Associate Professor and Hellman Faculty Fellow in the
Negotiation, Organizations Markets Unit at Harvard Business School.
She holds a PhD in Psychology from Princeton University and BA in Social
