How do you overcome challenges when sharing new ideas?

I really liked this question shared during ReTestBash, do you have experiences you can share and how you overcame the challenges?

Can you share a personal experience where you had a brilliant testing idea but faced challenges in persuading your team to adopt it?

Anonymous question from ReTestBash.

Hey @mcgovernaine ,
Whenever I have a good idea, I start to build different narratives around it such as;
What is the value that this will add to the products we are testing?
What would the harshest critic say about its potential limitations?
Does any of this involve a cultural change that involves other teams input?
I would suggest you do this a few times, because every time you ask yourself the question, more answers will come - Then at least, when you bring the idea up with the team, they may ask some of those questions and you will have an answer already prepped.
Hope that helps
Neil
