We often hear stories about assistants who have accomplished something big and introduced a new idea or process within their business.

Usually, it took nurturing that idea all the way to the top of the ranks.

It’s called “championing.” When you’re ready to put a big idea on the table, you’ll need to be a defender, a supporter and a champion of the idea.

Classic example: Spence Silver’s glue that wasn’t so good at sticking. He championed his pet project, and Post-it notes became an office mainstay.

As Silver once said, “You have to be a zealot at times in order to keep interest alive because it will die off.”

If people find you relentless, impatient and passionate about your idea, you’re probably a top-notch champion.
