Truth is that it is hard to be a leader and to get things started, if you don't have the power to do so (you said you were not the supervsior or boss). First you need to have the belief that Agile, Scrum, or whatever may not be the best for you. Maybe cowboy loner coding is best for you.
Second, you have to have a mission, small at first, but a mission. The first mission will be for yourself - follow your agile plan so you understand it, just for a small project.
Third, you have to have a mission, small at first, but a mission. This second mission will involve you and another team member. After that mission is complete have an honest conversation about the methodology and seeing if it works for you. If you do guess what? You need another mission and another person. Talk about it again. Eventually you'll have enough to talk to the boss. But if you have the developers on board, you don't need the boss because everyone will be doing it.
In this latter case, the one where you are successful, I would document from the beginning to the last scenario all that you have done and the results. I would present that to the boss and at least have a good write up for it and maybe a better raise when the time comes.
Don't forget to document this procedure or you won't get your credit - and you deserve it if it honestly helps you and your organization.
edit: this presumes you have the freedom from on high to do this. if you don't you'll need to ask for permission unless you are very sure, in which case you'll have to ask for forgiveness. Creativity needs freedom. Be sure you have it or be very careful.
