People want to be included in new ideas and decisions.
Even good ideas are not as important to others as the buy in.
Bright ideas become dull when they bypass the buy in process.
Some of the most creative problem solvers are rendered useless without the skills to include others in their ideas.
Encourage others to “hitchhike” on your idea and offer them a sense of ownership.
Show a sense of willingness to listen to the input of others.
Ask “what do you like best” about this solution and take notes.
Present creative ideas with a sense of wonder and humility.
When one person does all the thinking, they lose the powerful cooperation of others.
