    Dear Dan, An excellent commentary in followup to the article to the New York Times Magazine piece. As an “effect modifier”, or social advocate, I have altered the way I approach a room full of grassroots/community oriented people since reading your book, Make Just One Change. I do find that at the end of the meeting, the more questions about messaging and strategy are encouraged the more buy-in, and on going participation in a given project. Although I have had a lot of experience working with groups of people, and know how to draw the “quieter ones” out, the added dimensionality of listening to how they ask questions helps me to remember when to ease up and let the community dynamic flow rather than remain in full “consultant” mode.
