How do you get a peer or colleague to accept one of your ideas?

Example #1
"I think the most important thing is to listen to what my colleague wants. I ask them open-ended questions to get a good sense of their opinions and preferences about a certain topic. I try to combine their ideas with mine."
Example #2
"I am good at laying out compelling reasons why my colleague should accept my ideas. I'm very persuasive. I address the problem at its core and present my ideas in easy to consume points, which is usually very effective."
Example #3
"The best way to get a peer or colleague to get excited about an idea is to include them in the process, early and often. People like to feel heard. Keeping this in mind, I ask them quality discovery questions to help craft the idea and then gain their insights on the idea itself or plans for execution. It is an exciting process!"
