Getting Agreement in Six (not so) Easy Steps

by Brian Eshult | at MinneBar 11 | 9:55 – 10:45 in Theater | View Schedule

Colleagues, bosses, significant others—they all need convincing sometimes. Think about a time when you failed to convince someone that your solution or proposal was the best way to go. Do you know what went wrong? What you could have done differently? I’d love to share a magical solution for how to create buy-in for ideas, but I don’t have it. I do have a very useful framework from the Theory of Constraints body of knowledge that has increased my success rate through preparing and reacting with the framework in mind. This session is designed to be interactive. I’ll present six steps (key concepts) that will maximize your chances of getting agreement, buy-in, or approval. Then we’ll practice using them. Questions and feedback encouraged throughout.
