A Ritual for Leave Taking

To close a conversation easily, remember this LEAVE NOW Formula:

L = Let go of your partner after five minutes.

E = Explain what you must do. Be honest.

A = Act on your Agenda.

V = Veer off to talk with a referral.

E = Exit easily to another conversation by taking your partner with you.

N = Note what's gone on between you and your partner. Sum up the conversation and appreciate something that your partner said or did.

O = Outline the next step for your partner.

W = Walk. Shake hands and leave, purposefully.
