Work with me
How to get people to buy into your ideas
You have ideas. You’ve got projects and initiatives that you need to get off the ground. But here’s the rub - unless you can get others on board, those ideas aren’t going anywhere.
So how do you build willing and enthusiastic support for your ideas – where people work with you, not because they have to but because they want to? This is the gentle art of buy-in.
Buy-in sits at the very heart of collaboration. You can’t build highly engaged and nimble teams without it. And it’s the secret ingredient to implementing any kind of change.
Work with Me is your personal guide to creating genuine buy-in around your ideas and initiatives. In his refreshingly simple and entertaining style, Simon Dowling equips you to master the art of buy-in, by showing you how to:
- generate support for your ideas regardless of your position or level
- capture people’s hearts and foster the right mood for cooperation
- deal with pushback and resistance
- turn talk into sustainable action
- create a culture of buy-in throughout your organisation.
"In this magnificently practical book, Simon Dowling unpacks the science of collaboration and makes it an art. Read this to unlock profound new savviness in your quest to build buy-in."
