Beware the Swivel Chair!

Watch this Fortune 50 interview with Pam Nicholson, president and COO of Enterprise Holdings:

Great lessons in effective communication here. Nicholson is personable, poised, and clear. But unfortunately, she undermines herself by swiveling in her chair.  The back and forth movement is not only distracting, but also sadly lowers her status.

From the Green Room: When possible, try to avoid speaking in a swivel chair. If you have no choice, whatever you do - don't swivel!
