    Please note that although the following content is being delivered in an informal and quite light-hearted way, this should in no way detract from the serious point I will be making.

  • 24. “In harmonizing people’s objections,
    you are really adjusting your personality
    style to see their response as a request
    for more information. You are placing yourself
    in a position to see issues from their perspective.
    You are listening for what they are really saying,
    rather than preparing to annihilate them and
    their arguments when you get a chance to speak”
    Robert Rhom, PhD.
