Free webinar recording: How to build trust and lead with strength and confidence

March 3, 2013

After years of research on the power of trust and influence, social psychologist and Harvard Business School Professor Amy Cuddy provides insight on two qualities that leaders must have in order to be successful—warmth (trustworthiness) and strength (competence). In this webinar recording, Amy redefines warmth and provides valuable insight on why these two factors are essential for gaining trust and influence.

In this webinar, participants will learn:

– Why the content of your message is often less important than how you communicate it

– How people are often more influenced by how they feel about you than by what you say

– How connecting with others leads to more openness, creative thinking, and better outcomes
