# 8 Objection-Handling Checklist Worksheet


The goal of this tool is create a list of the common objections, clarifying questions for each objection and a
response to each objection.

Objection

Clarifying Questions

Your Response

I like you and your


services, but they are
just too expensive for
us right now.

Is the expense a matter of not having


enough budget set aside, or is the
budget just allocated to other priorities
right now?

I totally understand that this solution is not


inexpensive. But, given the value of all of
your other priorities, I think that the payoff of
our solution will actually be nearer-term.

As you think about your other


priorities that are using the budget,
how does the immediate value stack
up against what I am proposing?

Stories:
1. The Traveler
A long time ago, a traveler walked up to the gates of a walled city. In his travels across the world, this
traveler had seen many cities over many years. There was a man sitting just outside the gates, and so
the traveler asked him; "How do you find the people in this city?"
And the man responded with a question. He said; " How did you find the people in the last city you
visited?" The traveler said; "They were angry and they were mean. I didn't like them." And the man
said; "Well, I think you will find the people in this city the same way."
A few hours later, another traveler walked up to the man sitting outside the gates of the same city. This
traveler asked the man; "How do you find the people in this city?"
And the man responded with the same question. He said; "How did you find the people in the last city
you visited?" The traveler said; "They were amazing, friendly and warm. I really liked them." And the
man said; "Well, I think you will find the people in this city the same way."
