Boss states her opinion and then says "Don't you agree?"

"Pink Polka dots do provide a pop of color, that is true.  However, they are also associated with teenage girls.  So who is our target customer? Does this appeal to them?"

It allows face-saving on the part of boss - somebody thought polka dots were a good idea - but it wasn't Lee. Easier then to add "if you recall, my suggestion was the block colouring with the fancy fonts."

I like this one!

"I hadn't considered [pink polka dots] before. I can see how they would be [positive feature], but I tend to lean towards [blue stripes] or [green stars]."

"I don't think it would be valuable to the group to talk about that now. I'll get back to everyone at a later date."

"It sounds like we may need to talk about that a bit [within our group] and get back to [partners] later once we've reached a consensus."

We have a big meeting in a few weeks and I am pretty sure Lee will get the opportunity to use a few of these coming up.

And something tells me that if Lee uses a few of these, then boss will not be so quick to, shall we say, publicly intimidate her agreement in the future.  Problem solved.

No kidding. Perhaps it will get to the point where Supervisor's feelings won't be hurt by Lee's promotion to being under Boss.   ::)
