I have a standing desk. It holds two monitors, a few pages of paper, two pens and two highlighters. That’s it – nothing more.
Aside from the health benefits of a standing desk it does something much more important. It keeps me from nesting. Nesting to mean – sitting in a nice cozy chair for very long bits of time moving busy work around my digital or analog desktop.
When people come in to see me – we don’t sit. We have stand up meetings that get right to the point. They last long enough to move the business forward. We don’t get comfortable to the point of spending long bits of time engaged in chit-chat. Not that chit-chat and relationship building isn’t important – it is. But over the course of a day filled with a fair share of got-a-minutes – managing it is key.
Stand Up Desk – At the Site Level
I’m thinking deeply about the Customer Experience in our offices across Mills Portfolio and stand up desks, information/data entry ports and designated collision points are front and center to my vision.
The traditional office is in strong need of re-imagining. The day of the big desk with cozy comfortable nesting chairs is over. The day of a wide open fluid office space are here.
