Power Posing body language

Power Posing body language

This expression, knowing as pride, is done by all winners. Even if they are blind and have never seen someone do it before.

Power Posing for two minutes will affect how you feel yourself. It influences how you interact with others, how you perform and will give you confidence. Why not give it a try?

Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. In a TEDx-talk, social psychologist Amy Cuddy argues that “power posing” — standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don’t feel confident — can boost feelings of confidence, and might have an impact on our chances for success.

Amy Cuddy’s research on body language reveals that we can change other people’s perceptions — and perhaps even our own body chemistry — simply by changing body positions.

Watch the video below. It will help you during your whole life.

Infographics drive real, qualified leads

infographic, design, marketing, SEO, social media, sales, B2B business

there is a surefire way to make them work better for your audience while saving everyone valuable time. That way is with graphics. Why? Because graphics condense text, clarify relationships, and highlight patterns. They allow you to easily show your data

Infographics are a powerful way of communicating information since they combine both data and visuals – left brain and right brain – thereby making it easier to digest, remember and share information and knowledge.

Marketing is all about storytelling. We attract new customers with valuable and educational content.

But an infographic is up to 30 times more likely to be read than an article – and since it’s visual content, it’s also 34% more effective in persuading an audience in comparison to verbal presentations alone. Read More

Children are not afraid to make mistakes and have a rich imagination. They are nimble thinkers, who often come up with creative solutions. During a project, which lasted about six months, eventually 58 new concepts have been developed, from which eight patents have emerged!

Good ideas are vital for any business, and often you just have to grab them. Organizations that know how, are in the lead.

The life cycle of products is under considerable pressure. In less than half a century, the life cycle has been reduced by a factor of four! Therefore,  organizations are forced to break new ground.

The most successful ones, use the inventiveness of their clients, the fresh eyes of young people, and high ceilings! Read More

Speech? say everything without saying anything

marketing, speech, TED, presentation

Stephen Will great speech

Sometimes satire better than reality. That has been proven during the hilarious TED talk by Stephen Will, online since July and has been watched 170,000 times. We can learn a lot from Stephen.

He uses humor and a props, he varies his intonations and speech rhythm, plays with the expectations of his audience. That same public stays involved because he is a classic tension and appoints what he is doing (in the theater they call it deconstruction). Read More

What makes seed investors successful and why do they dare to invest?

startup, investment, finance, water, energy, sustainable solutions

Seed investors know that the chance of success is limited and that the survival rate of startups is limited.

Seed investors dare to invest because of their American approach. They take care of good and fast information. Between the American approach and the European is a philosophical divide.

When someone with an American approach invests in an early-stage startup, he accepts that the risk of failure is high.

He accepts that of his portfolio, the majority will fail. But by taking much risk he is convinced that a small percentage of its investments makes this amply. These are the new Instagrams, Ubers and Twitters. Read More
