In my younger days, I interviewed with an International Real Estate Holding Company and the process was going terrific with the final step to be a meeting with the high powered, high ego CEO. I sat down in his office, we shook hands, he looked at me straight in the face and the first words out of his mouth were "You don't know "!%&$". I lifted my jaw from the floor, looked him straight in the eye and replied, "I disagree" and confidently detailed the ways in which I would deliver value into his organization. I got the job offer the next day, but responded Thank You, But No Thank You. Lesson Learned- No one is motivated by intimidation.
