Lesson #1 Don’t get into this situation in the first place. Wayne Berry: That’s right, find out who all of the decision makers before you go too far and involve all decision makers if you can. If this is not possible and you do get stuck and can’t get a decision at the level you are dealing, then this is how you can attempt to regain control, by going to a higher level decision maker without offending the people at the level you are dealing now. This is a great strategy. Try it if you find yourself “stuck” like this.
