In a ┬ápost on her blog AuthenticOrganizations.com, consultant and scholar C.V. Harquail describes a three-step process–Acknowledge, Affirm, and Amplify–for “contributing ideas to a community while boosting someone else’s business at the same time.” Harquail suggests that this strategy “might create opportunities for the people you’re telling and the businesses you’re talking about.” ┬áTo illustrate the process, she describes her use of it regarding Shirli Kopelman’s post on HBR Blog regarding her recent book, Negotiating Genuinely.
