Great Idea! And… is not your typical management or leadership book!
You get a great idea.
It would make you and others look good. You try to run your idea by a boss or colleague who needs to have a stake in it. But instead of wild enthusiasm, the stakeholder pushes back — or you get no response at all. You give up on the idea. Why did this happen?
Great ideas sometimes get shot down because they are great.
Ideas connote change. Change (even the good kind) can be intense. No matter how solid your ideas may be, others may resist if they aren’t ready to see the beauty in them. How can you help them get ready?
- Ideas are like feedback. Your listener often shuts it down as a protection. Learn how to share your ideas in sensitive, inspiring ways that invite your listener to see the beauty of it.
- There is an art to idea sharing. In this workbook, you’ll learn how adults tend to learn as well as how to apply management and leadership best practices. A sense of humor will help you — the process may require you to appreciate people who might not appreciate you back!
- Create a personalized learning experience in how to present your ideas. You’ll develop your idea plan through creative exploration, reflection, testing, and planning.
- Managers: Use this workbook to strengthen your coaching skills and to encourage innovation in your team.
Whether you’re in your first job or a seasoned professional, Great Idea! And… will help you improve your communications with your colleagues and add to your existing portfolio of skills.

Don’t be fooled by Deb Wild’s amiable, casual, playful manner: she is listening deeply. Seriously. Her solutions not only embrace adult learning and the art of idea sharing, they apply the art of visual learning. Her ideas literally jump off the page to be used and applied.

Deb Wild knows the right questions to ask in order to get people involved. I want to clone her brain and learn to think like she does! As a high school teacher working with very reluctant learners; I’m eager to try out some of Deb’s clear and practical ideas in my classroom.
