..I can imagine the arguments you've had through the years!.. -- huibsThe best approach is to marshall people over to your position before a meeting, in my opinion. If there is no opportunity to do that, present your position, then work individuals in the crowd. There were not a lot of arguments though because the battle would be mostly decided before it was fought. :)The only big confrontations I remember was if I decided somebody wasn't being a team player. Then there would be trouble....sometimes with that person being taken off the program. You can't just be a road block, you've got to be open to ideas and offer alternatives.And, I remember being chewed out on occasion. The most memorable one is where a group of upper management ripped me apart in a meeting....for telling them the truth. In time, they came to see I was right, but I never got an apology.I'm not sure how many of them are still with Ford though. There were a lot of cutbacks over the last few years.RobRB Home Fool
