So you’ve got an absolutely genius new idea that you’re excited about, and you just can’t wait to share it with everyone... NICE! Great work coming up with something brilliant that’ll have an impact (and not to mention, raise your profile along the way), but now for the hard part: getting the rest of the crew on board.
It can be hard for people to embrace new ideas at work. Especially when they can’t see exactly what’s swirling around in your mad scientist brain and how you envision everything unfolding. But your ability to bring new initiatives to life can be critical to your career, and we happen to have a few Plays in our arsenal that will help get you the support you need to push your idea forward:
Project poster: Outline how your idea will help execute on a problem you’re solving for, and share why it matters to the business and your customers.
Demo trust: Present your vision to your leadership team to give them a thorough understanding, then provide them with the opportunity to challenge it.
Elevator pitch: Create an overview of your project idea that’s so concise it can be explained in the time it takes to ride an elevator. This will succinctly capture the true value of your idea.
Stakeholder communications: Build trust with the team by spelling out how you'll provide your stakeholders with the right information at the right time.
How do you tend to approach sharing a new idea with your team? Do you jump in feet first as soon as the idea strikes you? Or do you spend time preparing a thought-out presentation? We’d love to hear what works for you!
