Everyone wants innovation in their company, but getting a new idea implemented can be a challenge, especially when office politics are in play.
When you’re trying to get approval for your latest innovation idea, like a company podcast, follow these five steps.
- Anticipate resistance. If you know what people might object to, you can plan how you’ll address those concerns.
- Understand what objections are truly about. For example, someone might say they object because of a publicly acceptable reason — say, the project is too costly — when their real concern is political, like they’re afraid their team will lose influence.
- Find a champion for the project. This should be a senior executive whose clout and expertise can help you move the project forward.
- Gather a critical mass of supporters. If you have a group of people who believe in the innovation enough to try it, you’ll have social proof that the idea is a good one.
- Do your research. What other businesses in your category are doing podcasts. Is your competition publishing a podcast? How will your idea be different and effective for your company?
