Learn how to get what you want, when you want it, in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:49 Explanations: 3:34 Fast dialog: 16:55 Victor: We need to take the bull by the horns. In the meeting today, we’re going to give it to them straight, no more hemming and hawing. Maura: You’re right. We need to tell them what we really think and be done with it. Victor: Definitely. We’ve been conciliatory long enough. Today, we need to be insistent without being too pushy. Maura: Being unassuming and deferential has its place, but not if we seem meek. We need to be assertive without being too in-your-face. Victor: You’re absolutely right. One of us has to speak up. Maura: Yes, one of us has to be bold. They’ll have to take us seriously this time. Victor: Okay, ready? Maura: Sure, I have your back. Victor: Huh? I thought you were going to do the talking. Maura: Uh, I thought you were. Victor: Maybe we should wait for the next meeting to take them on. Maura: I totally agree. It’ll give us a little time to work up to it. Victor: Exactly! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
