FO: What do I do with a faux objection?

Try to acknowledge and harvest the wisdom in the faux objection while steering the process back to the original question.

For example: “I object to XY because I think we could instead do ZZ”, is a faux objection because it doesn’t answer how XY hurts our progress. In this case, move the idea ZZ into your backlog or later in the meeting and focus back on whether XY will create issues.
