2 You’ve developed your message, but your work is far from over! Your opposition (usually your employer) will always be out there, trying to contradict your message. Interviewers often use your opponent’s messaging to throw you off. And when you explain your message to a new audience (be it your members, leaders or news media) they make already be stuck in your opponent’s frame. That’s why you must be prepared to respond to your opponent’s argument with your own message, not theirs. rgb/tng39521/cwa/afl-cio
