You have a totally stellar idea that will boost the whole department’s productivity, or streamline workflows, or land a new client. Whatever it is, your idea is great, and it will have a huge positive impact on the company’s bottom line.
All your teammates agree: This is an excellent plan. It should be implemented right away.
Just one thing stands between you and the chance to become a workplace hero: Your boss.
You’re going to need your boss’s buy-in before your awesome idea becomes a reality – a feat easier said than done, depending on your boss and how they generally react to new ideas.
