WSJ: Power poses can the office may lead to advancement

Posted: Updated:

( – Looking to get ahead at work? According to research, posture could be a way to possible advancement.

The Wall Street Journal reports that several studies, including one done at Harvard Business School, shows people who strike assertive stances actually work like they hold power in the office. These stances can be either standing while others are seated or sitting forward in an engaged position.

The power poses have been shown to increase testosterone – boosting confidence and commanding attention; however, it's not just the power poses that can affect your career.

Weak postures, such as slouching, leaning back, or crossing your arms, at work conveys insecurity and actually leads to the increased production of stress hormones.
