Jim, I had the same exact issue as you after watching some of the MobilityWod Videos and a presentation that Kelly did for Google. I know this will not answer your question directly but instead guide you to take action and pick up the book because it’s well worth it and will instantly answer your questions and make perfect sense on the first read through.

 I just purchased the book and Chapter 2 in the book covers in step by step detail the Bracing Sequence to include Spine, Hip, Shoulder, and Neck Position, The Two-Hand Rule in detail with illustrations and Various Braced Neutral Positions for Sitting and Standing, as well as the importance of abdominal tension, and proper breathing using your diaphragm instead of your neck and chest.  I would not hesitate even another second because the book is worth far far more than the cover price. Although I’m a fan of the mobilityWod videos, The book is presented in a very detailed and organized, with easy to follow sequencing for every concept and model Kelly introduces.
Here are some links to Kelly’s videos that you’ll find handy. Considering you sit a lot, I recommend you start with the Google Seminar.
Google Video Seminar that Kelly did. It covers the two hand rule, sitting strategies, and basic positioning set up.

Here’s a video on Head Positioning that may help:
