Smart talk always right?

Consider the following statements:

"In way too many meetings, the fastest talkers win. And by "fastest talkers", I mean those who are the first to articulate an idea, challenge, issue, whatever. Too many of us assume that if it sounds smart, it probably is, especially when we aren't given the chance to think about it. The problem is, the guy with the "gut feeling"--the one who senses that something's not right, but has no idea how to explain it, let alone articulate it on the spot--might be right. Too bad, though, because the glib usually rule."

If you agree, think about next time how you're going to deal with challengers if you think you're right with the issues at hand but you're not a fast thinker nor a fast talker by any means like yours truly. Take a deep breath, think it over, be confident in yourself, head back to the meeting room, you can win it over.
