Creating real connections to enact real change.
It's not enough to know who the key decision-makers are - you need to understand their politics with constituents and colleagues alike. It all matters.
Trust the process. It takes careful coordination to line up champions, cordon off opponents, work the proper channels at committee and get approval from leadership.
Successful advocacy is built on solid messaging. Your narrative has to cut through the clutter. It also has to make for good policy.
Know which buttons to push - and when. Having a smart strategy is a must. That said, there's no substitute for direct engagement by you.
