Habits are those behaviours that we do without thinking. Imagine having a habit around making a decision, recognising a stressor, or creating a mental model for remembering a concept. What kind of relief for both the business and the people would it bring to be practicing these positive behaviours without thinking?
We spent $156 billion dollars on learning programs in 2011 just in the USA, and why was so much of that money wasted? Training can be good or bad, but the real issue is that we aren’t measuring what behaviour is changing as a result. Employees want to be real contributors and experience change in a personalised way. Both the organisation and individual needs can be achieved through the focused learning, experimentation, reflection, and sharing, all of which is what we provide as a pattern of learning and habit development.
A culture of continuous improvement is needed for the potential to be able to increase at a sustainable pace. Change-oriented organisations require fundamental shifts in how we and our teams perceive the world: and doing so continuously with speed, focus, agility… and passion.
