John Daly, Advocacy

When a group of people gather together to generate ideas for solving a problem or achieving a goal, sometimes the best ideas are passed over. Worse, a problematic suggestion with far less likelihood of success may be selected instead. Why would a group dismiss an option that would be more effective? Leadership and communications expert John Daly has a straightforward answer: it wasn’t sold to them as well. If the best idea is yours, how can you increase the chances that it gains the support of the group? In Advocacy: Championing Ideas and Influencing Others, Daly explains in full detail how to transform ideas into practice.

Dr. Daly is a professor in the College of Communications and McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin.  He has worked with more than 300 public agencies and private organizations around the world in consulting, training and speaking roles including 3M, Apple Computers, Dell Computers, Goldman Sachs, and Home Depot.
