Getting Out of the Hot Seat

The key is to get out of the hot seat, but still stay engaged, deftly shifting control of the conversation back to you while shifting the spotlight—and the pressure—back on him.    By now you’re probably aware of the virtues of an STR approach named after the infamous Lieutenant Columbo.
