Once you have identified the key issue in the question, you must handle your response effectively. The first step is to Buffer, a special form of paraphrase that strips out any hostility in the question, condenses the question and confirms the question with the asker. Once the answer is given, the presenter is then free to Topspin, a special technique to add value, offer a benefit, and state the message.
