Having an internal advocate can be an amazing thing. A person who is willing to be a champion for you in some way can truly help you. For example, they can open doors, get a product or offering considered, or even get you a job. However, having someone ready to go to battle for you within their organization can be dangerous for them.
Every organization has stakeholders with different objectives and varying political currencies. This is why people are often hesitant to promote ideas, people, or products within their organization even if they think highly of them. They may be forced to expand political capital or move contrary to the objectives of other stakeholders. And, as the picture to the right demonstrates, the armor they possess may not cover their rear end. As someone in need of a champion, it is crucial to make that person look good. Additionally, it should cost them as little political capital as possible by arming them properly.
