Bad: disguising a plea for help as a favor

Don’t pretend that when you’re asking someone a favor, you’re actually doing her a favor. That’s a gross power move that many people can see right through. If, for example, you want someone to come speak at your meetup group, don’t tell her, “It’d be a good opportunity for you.” Tell her, “You’d be doing me a favor.”
