So, we’ve got you dressing one step up and talking one step up, now you have to act one step up.  I know, I know, it’s all too much, too hard, too difficult.  Who said this was going to be easy? Not me, pal, I told you right from the word go that this was going to be hard – harder in fact than just doing the job like normal people. 
Being a Rules Player takes more effort, requires more attention to detail and is generally more like hard work than hard work. But the results are fantastic.  In fact being a Rules Player automatically qualifies you for promotion – if you can be a Rules Player you deserve to be promoted.  It’s a sort of self-fulfilling prophecy.  Carrying out the Rules requires strength of character, will power, determination, honesty, courage, experience, great talent, dedication, drive, nerve and charisma – if you’ve got all these you’ll be promoted anyway.



So, act one step up.  Look at the way your boss enters the office.  Notice anything?  Watch the way they answer the phone, talk to staff, entertain customers, hold their pen, hang up their coat, open their office door, sit down, and stand up–anything they do.  I bet you’ll notice that they move differently from, say the office junior or the maintenance team or the sales force or the marketing folk or the PR people.

“CARRYING OUT THE RULES REQUIRES STRENGTH OF CHARACTER, WILL POWER, DETERMINATION, HONESTY, COURAGE, EXPERIENCE, GREAT TALENT, DEDICATION, DRIVE, NERVE AND CHARISMA”.

Acting one step up requires you to:
·                    Be more certain of yourself
·                    Be more mature
·                    Be more confident

You have to be languid and suave and sophisticated – no, no, not swaggering or aggressive.  A simple exercise – do you have your own office?  Do people knock on your door? What do you say?  A mild ‘Come in, please?’ or a one step up ‘Come’.  The higher you go the less time you have to waste.  You get slicker and quicker, sleeker and fitter.  You don’t have time to waffle or use long expressions – a simple ‘Come’ is more expedient.  You too have to be expedient.  That’s the secret. Next.
