But I had a plan, and I sent it to my boss and explained it to him so he was on board, and in the meeting, I had all the necessary information to convince everyone else that it was the best route. "I think this is a compromise position that everyone can live with," said Mr. SVP at the end of the meeting. I didn't mention that I was more satisfied with the "compromise" than I had been with the plan that we would have proceeded with if we hadn't had that meeting.
AND everyone in the meeting came out feeling like I'd saved the day by coming up with this plan everyone could live with.
I FEEL TRIUMPHANT!
