Want to get people to buy into your idea?
Give them a piece of it.
Incorporate their suggestions.
Listen to them before you speak.
Follow-up to their suggestions with questions.
Bring them onto the team.
Step back and let them run with it.
In short – Make them a part of the solution. When people are a part of something, whether it’s 2 or 100 people, they become part of that something, and they want to see it turn into something bigger than themselves and the team.
There is no selling here, only becoming part of something bigger.
