Power Moves for Public Speaking

Power Moves – Sharpening Skills Ep 05

A power move is a specific movement that you do right before you step on stage. In rehearsals, you'll repeat it thousands of times and that gets you locked in a very high-level state. You body knows that when this move happens - it's on.


  • Find your best power move.

    Take your ego, throw it out the window, close your eyes and on the count of three, put yourself in a position that makes you feel powerful.

  • Try making your power move small.

    You can do a mini power move that you can practice again over and over and over in public without scaring people. You can take it down to a fraction of a movement.

  • Go and do that thing.

    Experiment with power move candidates in the comfort of your own private space to figure out what the strongest variation is. Then try it and see if really lands for you or not.

"I like the ritual of it. My body knows that when this happens, it's on. My power move puts me in an entire state of being.Traver Boehm
