Every Techy’s Challenge

By Apr 23, 2019 April 26th, 2019 Ask Anett

I have been making presentations for months. My leadership team doesn’t understand. They keep asking for more details. I keep giving them more and more—but can’t get a decision.

When your leaders ask for more details, it’s a sure sign that they don’t understand the relevance. You have to resist the temptation to educate by explaining “how” your technology works, and switch to an influence model—Why your technology matters. Sell the urgency—not the ingredients.
