almost happened to me but my champion talked them off the ledge. truth to be told I really wasn't that bad but I had an incentive for them and everything was done (legal/security/compliance)
I feel a bit bad because I don't want people to feel that way with me but I also think I was just doing my job.
*edit* I want to add that I don't know how close they actually were or if that was serious. just that the signing authority was a bit upset with the pressure. looking back at my communication I was so respectful and always moving the ball forward with tangible updates.
I have a fiscal requirement to bring in deals every quarter and they were financially incentived to sign this month and not next. So if I hadn't put the incentive to save them money and just let it close in July that would be better?
The pressure came from the fact that I had to go through security, compliance and legal in 2 weeks rather than 4 to make it for this quarter.
