The Primary “D” Loves it when you:

  • Are brief, direct, and to the point when explaining yourself
  • Ask “what” not “how” questions
  • Focus on the results (they desire results)
  • Give them the “bottom line” when describing a situation
  • Suggests ways to help them solve problems
  • Highlight the benefits when telling them about your ideas

  • Focus on problems instead of solutions
  • Make generalizations
  • Make statements without support
