On this episode, we talk about how to get the boss to buy into new ideas.
Jim Detert is a Global expert in this field. Organizations do not prosper unless middle managers have the confidence to identify and champion change. Getting buy-in is key.
Jim identifies the problems faced by so many corporate innovators, intrapreneurs and entrepreneurs in residence.
He then discusses his frameworks on how to circumnavigate so many blockers to enable much-needed change and innovation.
We also discuss how leaders can create the conditions for such recommendations to be made from simple changes in where ideation happens to how they mingle with their teams.
Check out some excellent articles by Jim and his research partners Ethan Burris and Susan Ashford:
