  1. Would it be a ridiculous thing to ask Greg Koukl to collaborate with Chris Voss? Koukl's TATICS seems like an easier tool than NEVER SPLIT THE DIFFERENCE. Greg's "What do you mean by that?" is not very good as Chris reminds us: The Voss brand of isopraxism seems better. Although when using this method Chris uses it tends to get a plain ol' "Yes" half of the time from my experience. For me, asking "What do you mean by (insert those one to three key words)?" seemingly worked 100%! It's like Greg says, they often don't know what they mean because it's just a bare assertion thus, the "Yes," response. Chris would probaly be more helpful in helping Greg's book becoming more useful even though Greg wrote the easier to use book. Chris seems to know what to say better than anyone, and both of their books would be beneficial for any worldview!

  2. Do you have anything talking about being a leader under someone with less experience or knowledge and how to deal with that and work for them, including how to go about subjects that you know more about than they do? Even to the point knowing something they're leading could fail because of their lack of experience or knowledge. Should this be handled differently inside the church versus the secular world?
