This answer can vary based on experience. Think about your personality and how you present your ideas to someone else, make sure you avoid words such as pushy, forceful. ie: Do you present facts and statistics and explain the results from your research? Do you influence them by coming up with inspirational concepts?
"When I would like others to see my way, I am sure to carefully lay out the ways that my idea will benefit them. I review those reasons, collect agreement from them, and then close them on the idea by having them verbally agree that it's the soundest decision or choice."
"Some additional ways that you can gain the agreement of others:
- Collect a few 'yes' answers from them before making your final request
- Ensure that your timing is always appropriate
- Get to know them and what they value / need. Build your proposition from there
- Have credibility, be honest, and logical"
