Jose: "You are a great leader and have always made great decisions for the team. I'm sure you'll choose the best one this time, too."
Kira: "You've always said we should aim high. I think my idea will help our company reach new markets and raise up to the next level."
John: "I think my idea has the highest chance for a good return on our investment with the least risk. My market research is solid, and I think my idea is our best choice."
