How to take charge of the triggers in your work environment and make your business stronger as a result
We are usually unaware of the triggers that can affect our working environment, but destructive or constructive triggers that prompt certain behaviours can either undermine or support our business and personal success.
But the question is – how can you make the changes needed to create a better working environment to deliver better behaviour from your team and better results for your business?
Here are 4 steps to take to help you take charge of the triggers in your work environment:
1. Start seeing your work environment as a source of behavioural triggers.
Take responsibility for the habits within your working environment. Identify the good habits and the bad ones.
2. Remove the triggers that encourage destructive working habits.
Destructive work habits prevent you from achieving your best results. Knowing that a repeated event (a habit) is a response to a trigger, you must identify those triggers and take action to remove them from your working environment.
3. Install triggers that encourage constructive working habits.
Having removed the destructive triggers, you can now focus all your time and energy on triggers that will support and encourage the right behaviours, enabling your business to flourish.
4. Use structure in the workplace to help reinforce the triggers, behaviours and results in your business.
Structures such as agendas, checklists, daily priorities, calendar management and visually displayed score boards in the offices of your team will help drive through the change to make new positive triggers habitual.
