Cuddy has popularized the concept of power poses. Her main message is that body language isn’t a one way street from the brain to the body. Instead, the body signals things to the brain – and, it can be gamed to our advantage.
WHY we do, what we do?
Great leaders know that why they are doing, what they are doing?
Think about your own life, the decisions that have shaped your destiny.”
What is your motive for action?
What is it that drives you in your life today?
According to Simon Sinek, Great ideas begin not with the “What,” but with the “Why” and then the “How.”

5) Itay Targum
In Itay Talgam’s Ted Talk, he took an interesting approach in order to discuss various styles of leadership. He features footage of four different orchestras and specifically examines how the conductor of each leads the musicians. One of the conductors had his eyes closed while leading, as he allows his orchestra to lead him through the musical piece. He trusts his orchestras. When analyzing the next conductor, Talgam describes how the meaning of music is showed on the face of the conductor as he lets the players tell the story. The next conductor was seen as very strong, forceful, and controlling. He felt if he was going to conduct a piece by Mozart, then “I’m responsible for Mozart, this is going to be the only story to be told. It’s Mozart as I, Riccardo Muti, understand it.” The final conductor was Richard Strauss. His mentality was “If you sweat by the end of the concert it means that you must have done something wrong.” Additionally, he believed that the page was in charge and that “You have to play by the book. So it’s not about my story. It’s not about your story. It’s only the execution of the written music, no interpretation.”

Tom Wujec: Build a Team, Build a Tower
The fundamental lesson, I believe, is that the design truly is a contact sport. It demands that we bring all of our senses to the task, and that we apply the very best of our thinking, our feeling and our doing for the challenge that we have at hand. And sometimes, a little prototype of this experience is all that it takes to turn us from an “uh-oh” moment to a “ta-da” moment. And that can make a big difference.’
In this TED talk, five-star general Stanley McChrystal shared his experience in leadership in decades of military service. How do you create a sense of sharing for people of different ages and different technical backgrounds? How to solve the possible failures by listening and learning? For what I learn from this is a great leader is not always right, but he always willing to learn and the trust, they willing to listening from the lower. It also important to built relationship to each other. As the time age so fast, the way of people doing thing is different, the experience is so different because of age, so we have to share purpose, share consciousness. That is the challenge the leader often face.
