We went out for a curry the other night and whilst waiting for our food – Alan received a call on his mobile – He took the call and
We were sat by the window and Mark and I were happily chatting away but in the corner of our eye we were distracted by Alan
pacing up and down....and up and down (Check out the Mark's awesome footage below)
We were laughing about him and taking the mick (as usual) but it got me thinking....does pacing up and down whilst talking on
your phone make you more productive?
It's all to do with the body language
Those of you who have attended the Pop-Up Business School will remember the exercise with Person A and Person B, when we
had 3 minutes to communicate with our partner and each minute they displayed a different character of being interested, not interested or over interested.
Which person were you? If you were person A and had to communicate whilst the other person was looking around and acting distracted, how did it make you feel?
Pop-Up Business School are currently in Weston-super-Mare and this is the 2nd time that I have undertaken this exercise and even though I remembered it from last year I still had terrible trouble communicating to my partner when he acted like he couldn't care less.
Whilst talking on the phone, we are unable to communicate with our expressions, all we can use is our voice – hence why we
walk about when using our phone, our body is sub-conscientiously aware that we aren't communicating to our full potential and this is our body's way of making up for it.
So there you have it; it won't stop us taking the mick out of Alan though!
