I couldn't agree more, Denis!

I just started a job recently as the Scientific Director of a Medical 
Education company. We have teleconferences all the time with "KOL"s 
(Key Opinion Leaders) who are foremost in their particular medical 
field. We have to lead them, with the utmost respect,  to what we 
want them to say without their being aware that they are being led.

One of the first things I was taught is that when there is a silence 
on the line, whomever speaks first, loses.
