Add urgency to calls by standing up

When on the telephone, one of the best ways to get a better outcome is to stand up when making calls.

You might think that you look an idiot standing up whilst everyone in the office is sitting down. However, your results will soon speak for themselves come pay day.

Standing up when on the phone is like magic for a whole number of reasons.

Firstly, it changes the shape of your body, meaning, the sounds you make when talking are different and people on the other end of the line can tell and will react in a positive way. They will indeed hear your height!

Secondly, in relation to the phone on your desk you will be taller, so you will feel more confident as you will be bigger and taller than the phone. Although this seems like madness, remember we are all chimps at the end of the day.

Thirdly, standing up creates confidence as you will be standing up straight and have your shoulders out, meaning you are not slumped at your desk.

The last and best reason? It is so much healthier than sitting down for eight, nine, or ten hours day.

Remember Donald Rumsfeld used a standing desk and look at everything he accomplished. Oh.
