Helping people, teams and organizations perform at their best, in the behavioral moments of every workday.
Performance at work happens moment by moment. And these moments add up to the tasks and projects that are your work and your career. You can perform at your best by better understanding your behaviors in-the-moment, by training these behaviors daily, and by establishing positive conditions for your success. And as a leader or manager, you can transform your teams or your organization by putting in place the behaviors that drive innovation and excellence.
Why? Job performance happens, moment by moment -- in the meetings, conversations, and tasks that fill every work day.
What are the behaviors you'd like some of your co-workers to change? And what might they want to change about you? Work should be about continuous development of these types of in-the moment behaviors, but in most teams and organizations this is not what's happening.
By learning to be more aware of unproductive thinking and behavior in these daily moments, you and your teams can boost performance and head down the path to becoming more behaviorally fit.
What? Leadership in my view is about putting in place the conditions that enable people to perform at their best on a daily basis.
Yet, large-scale studies by Gallup, Towers-Watson, the Corporate Leadership Council, Blessing White and others all show clearly that across countries, sectors and roles, the majority of employees are not fully engaged in their work.
Using simple techniques grounded in hard-science, you can work more effectively by making simple and positive changes in the way that you think, feel, and behave in the everyday moments that matter most to your performance. And as a leader or manager, you can set the positive conditions that allow your people to do the same.
How? Well-intentioned managers and companies are spending valuable time and money to help employees develop critical skills in areas such as emotional intelligence and teamwork.
But three days at the gym doesn't leave you physically fit, and likewise three days trying to be a better listener or a more trusting manager doesn't make you behaviorally fit. Behavior change is difficult and requires practice and a supportive working environment.
By thinking about the workplace like the gym, and using simple and science-based techniques, you can develop a training plan for transforming unproductive habits and fine-tuning the behaviors that matter most to your own performance and the performance of your teams.
