How to Get More Buy-in for My Ideas from Key Stakeholders, Clients and Team Members
In this 3-part video series you’ll discover three powerful tools for getting your voice heard, support from the people that matter and how to get to “yes” so your ideas don’t die.
If the thought of getting buy-in for your ideas makes your heart race and your feelings of anxiety kick in, you aren’t alone. It’s extremely frustrating to have your brilliant ideas stopped dead in their tracks by nay-sayers, territorial leaders, or legacy thinkers that fear change. I’ve seen the best solutions end up in the idea graveyard due to lack of buy-in. The truth is, it’s not the best ideas that win, it’s the best communicated ideas that win. There are some very important keys to getting buy-in from key stakeholders, and it’s not actually about the idea, the presentation, or the titles of the people in the room. It’s actually about the strength of your voice, pulling (not pushing) people into your thinking, and the co-creation of ideas. When you know how to communicate innovation you can instantly elevate the buy-in, momentum, and energy behind any good idea.
