We are here to guide clients: but this is not always the case when your client believes they are the target audience for their product. How do you convince them that they are not and trust the agency?

Does anyone remember using Philosophical Chairs as a strategy in the classroom? You know, the one where we teach kids to make a claim based on the evidence they've gathered, then express it in a respectful manner, followed by hearing what the other side has to say, listening with ears open to the facts presented and being prepared to change their mind should they hear compelling evidence to do so? I certainly hope they cling to that rather than mimicking the actions of their predecessors. 🤦♀️
