What minimal manipulations can empower people?

Amy Cuddy presented power posing at Pop Tech and echoed the message she shared in her TED talk. Although Amy presented essentially the same content in both speeches, she concluded differently. At the end of the Pop Tech presentation, she asked, “What other minimal manipulations can empower people?”

Amy Cuddy found one manipulation which drastically affects our success and others’ perception of our character.

Are there other scientifically proven manipulations which empower people? In short, what minimal manipulations can people make – in 2 minutes or less – to live a more abundant, more successful, more fulfilling life?

If you don’t know if a manipulation is scientifically proven to empower others, what minimal manipulations do you believe would have the biggest impact on people's lives?
