Highlights of the ATL WEBFEST presentation
Exercise in understanding the conversation from the other party’s perspective. There were two goals to be achieved via this exercise. First, realizing that other people have different needs and priorities. Second, to be able to engage the other person in one’s endeavor, one must understand what the other’s needs and priorities are. Elaborate a compelling case that speaks to those needs and priorities. If there is no alignment between the offer and the need, it is extremely difficult to sell the idea or project to that particular target.
