How to get buy-in for your ideas
One of the most common challenges I see in my work is leadership spending very little time thinking about how to communicate a change or solution to their high-performing teams.
A lot of work goes into solving problems at the leadership level, and often times the value of that work is dramatically diminished by poor communication.
Simply put, solving a problem is only half the work. The other half is where you put time, effort and energy into communicating it to your team.
You may have the single best solution, but if your team don’t buy-in to it then you are going to be spending a lot of your time and energy dealing with resistance and push back.
Leaders present their team with solutions and wonder why they get problems.
Instead, leaders should present their team with problems and get help creating solutions.
