More on The Convincer

On Sunday night's Mad Men, Don Draper presents new creative to a bathing suit company.  When the prospect takes exception to how racy it is, despite having briefed Draper on their conservative values, the delicate genius berates the prospect, kicks them out of the office and storms out.

It's a nice follow up to my last post about the role of convincer in the thinker --> doer continuum. 

Specifically, the scene speaks to the value of someone who doesn't fall in love with their own brilliance, and can suspend their own agenda to focus on the needs of their client.

That's it.
