I have been talking with a fellow office cube monkey about my transformation to a standing desk and how I have essentially rallied behind this healthier way of working. She asked me how in the world my boss would be on board with this idea. I hadn’t thought of this but I had no resistance from my boss. Thank you boss, I like you.
Have you wanted to transform your office space at work to a standing desk? Nervous to discuss the topic with your boss? Here is my tip:
Yell at your boss: “I don’t want the sitting disease!”
I am only kidding. Lead with the productivity, healthier work day and ergonomics of the standing desk.
So how do you get the ball rolling? Have the conversation with your boss. Do some research. Use the words, sitting disease. Show them the handout below. Please know I am here for you.
