This Body Language Makes You Look Like a Leader | TIME
Eric Barker stashed this in Diabolical Plans For World Domination
What shows authority and power?
As a leader, you show authority and power by your erect posture, command of physical space, purposeful stride (like that of Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs as he moves across the stage during a presentation), and firm handshake, and through an array of hand signals including “steepling” and palm-down gestures that send nonverbal signals of authority.
so you're saying I should do this:
You got it. Big and scary is a show of power!
And what communicates warmth?
As a leader, you communicate warmth nonverbally with open body postures, palm-up hand gestures, a full-frontal body orientation, positive eye contact, synchronized movements, head nods, head tilts, and smiles.
