• It depends on the proposed ideas, and the type of crowd you're talking about.

      Interesting! I was thinking more on a personal basis
    • Ice man
      On a one to one basis, yes. I've got a pretty good handle on it, but I occasionally get it wrong.
    • Linda Joy
      Don't we all?
  • If I was I wouldn't have made that "cricket" post that upset you so much.
    • Linda Joy
      That was more timing than anything and I don't think anyone could have predicted that! Besides it was light years ago and a five minute flash of anger. Forget about it.

  • I'm not sure if I am great at that. I am, however, always thinking about how I can pose and deliver an idea or question to someone to encourage them to buy into it or not. How that is delivered and one's choice of words can definitely influence someone's action or reaction to the proposal.
    • Linda Joy
      I bet you are good at that! Have you done this a lot in your profession?
  • Yes. It's some kind of instinct I've developed over time. It's the body language I can read this
