Still not sure if you have a champion in one of your accounts?
Well, why don’t you just ask them?
Champions are there before you meet them. They’re champions in their world before you ever have called them one. So if you’re not sure if you have one or not, just ask.
Champions, in order for them to help us, have to be able to do two things: they have to be able to break rules where required and influence those who disagree. We don’t know if they have those powers unless we confirm them.
So do what I do.
I always have two closes to ensure I have a champion. “Are you going to work as hard as I’m about to work at my company to find a home for it as you’re going to find a home for it at your company?” And “If this gets stuck, will you unstick it for us?”
If I hear two yeses, I can say, yes, I have a champion.
