Pitch A New Idea To Your Supervisor/Company
For those of us who thrive off of feeling appreciated in the office setting, pitching a new idea or project to our superior should be one of the top three missions to accomplish while at your place of employment. In pitching a new concept to your supervisor, many details must be considered, like whether it will promote the growth of the company, how you would spearhead the project and manage your current workload, etc. Although this might seem time-consuming and risky, the benefits definitely outweigh the work involved. In addition to making your presence known within the company as a beneficial and valuable employee who brings ideas to the table, it establishes that you are willing to tackle new territory that falls in line with the company’s goals and objectives: to grow and to thrive.
How to achieve this:
Make an outline of a new idea or way of doing things that you’ve wanted to see happen at your job; make sure it goes in-line with the company’s overall mission and won’t cost extravagant amounts. Listen in on conference calls and meetings and take notes to figure out where the “holes” are in certain areas or projects. Research your idea thoroughly before you present it to an upper-level manager; it shows your dedication and commitment to making sure that this project is worth the company’s time.
