That's Great Idea!

January 23, 2019

Often the best idea is one that has not occurred to anyone else. You may be met with resistance and a barrage of negativity but stick to your guns. There may be times when historical events has paralyzed your colleagues. Afraid of what seems to be an insurmountable task. When "friendlies" tell you it can't be done, do it anyway. When your boss tries to nicely coerce you in another direction, express to them the importance of resolving the issue. The following are three key principles when embarking on a great task.

Write it down! As a self-proclaimed documentation queen, I have penned my best work on the throne! I know "TMI" right. Always start with the written word. Writing out the problem and it's possible solutions relieves stress and helps in clarity. You can take your time and map out all processes and possible hindrances. Start with a SWOT (Strength, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) analysis. It is the best way to go. This method allows you to consider all angles. Secondly, document how your solution will effect, people, process and technology.

Trust your gut. Your many years of experience has taught you something, go with it. Never mind those who try to quench your passion by offering faux advice. These are people who half-heartedly offer advice under the guise of truth but are designed to make you feel inadequate. Be bold, yet respectful, be confident, yet kind and most of all be brief but thorough.

Lastly, you must present. Presentation is key. Make sure you present your idea in the best possible light. Be careful not to alienate or point fingers. Be mindful of all possible stakeholders and be sure to ask permission when venturing in other areas beyond your purview. If there were contributors, cite their contributions, if there may be costs be honest about the outlay. Authenticity, is always interpreted by the audience. Be authentic!

Your great idea could be the difference between keeping you in the present position or catapulting you to the next level. Please take the leap and make it happen. Bitterness at work begins with un-attempted improvements. At the risk of sounding cliché', "Be the change you want to see". Your idea could be the difference in how your company does business and could be a trailblazing fete. Think about it! Good Luck.
