Not a lot. Just training more students and preparing for the holidays. I'm getting ready for another business trip in a couple weeks. We have to work on some technical data. Loads of fun. On the flip side of all of that I find that going to different towns is a lot of fun. I try to touch bases with people from the forum that I know if I can.
I understand what you mean about diplomacy. I used to always try to be diplomatic and found it was more work than it was worth most times. Instead, I worked on presenting the information first and then presenting my findings in a logical manner works pretty well for me in most cases when it comes to business. If that doesn't work, I re-emphasize it. If that doesn't work, I let them wallow in ignorance.
After things blow up in their face they tend to ask what went wrong. I'll take that moment to remind them about the voice of reason that they ignored. I usually get better results after that. Sometimes, you just have to let people fall on their faces with a resounding thud.
