Hi Keith, I always explain the Objection Round as the round where the Proposer invites the other Partners to help him/her to see if the Proposal will cause the Organization no harm. So raising an Objection is a positive thing that invites the other Partners and the Proposer to have a critical look at the Proposal as is. This so we make sure that the Proposal will contribute to the evolving organizations Governance.

So by changing the mindset from an Objection to an Invitation I try to avoid the personal feeling of objecting.
