What kinds of ideas might you be seeking approval on? Are you looking for approval for a kitchen remodel or redesign project to ultimately improve efficiencies and workflow? Or, are you wanting additional staff, or a change to the staffing structure of your department? All are important and worthy of approval, but how you approach getting the approval will make or break the decision. In this course, we will review the issues to consider when pitching your idea and learn approaches to sell a great idea through strong communication, persuasion, and self-awareness.
