Step 1: Make Your Case. It's imperative you are clear, direct and honest with everyone.

Step 2: Extend A Genuine Invitation. How to ask for genuine feedback and guard against fake feedback.

Step 3: Role Model. Make sure you are demonstrating ideas. As simple as this sounds, it's often overlooked.

Step 4: Recognize and Award Behavior. Do NOT reward outcome, reward behavior.

Step 5: Close the Loop. Make sure you are acknowledging ideas no matter what the outcome.
