Success in business or for that reason in life is not about having the most brilliant answer. Its all about a workable solution. And that requires developing an understanding of the UNWRITTEN rules of an organization and your own life.
To become more persuasive and effective, figure out who and what really matters. Ask successful people at your Company or circle of close people what approaches and relationship helped them most.
Be curious about the ways people get things done, and observe the inner working of projects and initiatives you are not the part of by building relationship with influential people.
Trust me! All the information you gather can contribute to your own future success, if you implement them judiciously.
Best of luck!
