You've focused on developing strong academic and presentation skills but do you know that you can increase your effectiveness in working with others (advisor, lab mates, future boss) by your tone, posture, and eye contact? Research shows that judgments about competence are made in less than 100 milliseconds. In this lunchtime session, you'll learn how non-verbal behavior affects your status and develop strategies to maximize your power.
