I glide like a gazelle.

I also recommend that you find out what your boss recommends and keep him happy.

Virtually any time I'm covering distance on the court, I will at least jog. It conveys "hustle."

I make sure to stop and stand still while reporting.

I've been evaluated positively for "hustling."

I run whenever possible. But if I am standing in a spot where I would be reporting, I walk hard to the spot. Then most of all I run to where I need to go next if possible as well. Never slow walk anywhere. But as those said, this is based on where you work and who you work for. I am going to do things irregardless of who I work for as it relates to hustle so that is the last thing anyone can say, "He did not hustle all game."

Peace

I will occasionally walk. (Not saunter, walk with a purpose) I use this if the game seems to be getting out of control a little bit. It slows the game down a touch and particularly with boys, lets the testosterone overdoses subside. Otherwise, I will jog to the reporting area. Running looks stupid and fake.

For me it probably depends where I'm at...

If I'm lead I jog with a purpose to report all the time no matter table or opposite.

If I'm trail working opposite, I turn report and jog with a purpose opposite.

If I'm opposite up high working table, I probably walk with a purpose stop report and continue to tableside (If I were to get lazy and walk and talk, this would be where it would happen)

Opposite low on a close down or similar working table jog with a purpose

I would never run - that would look silly

I'll jog at a good pace so as not to slow the game down.

What I need to do a better job of is stopping before I begin to report.
