I have to admit that this filter is way more complex that what I am about to propose. I guess this is a good place to start, but please note it goes a lot deeper.
To put it all simply, people will need one of 3 to happen before they can make a decision.
See = A person will need to see the information
Hear = A person will need to be told the information
Do = A person will need to get a hold of, interact with & get a fee for the information
Essentially this is VAK strategy that will need to be fulfilled for a person to make their decision.
So figure out how your boss likes to make decisions and always ask for his support on your ideas in that way.
You might ask: “What do you need in order to make decisions on new ideas?”
When you listen to a persons answer you are looking for the types of words they are using. Are they talking about doing, hearing or seeing, once you know their preference try presenting your ideas the way they like it.
Not the way you prefer.
