Improving Performance by Changing Behaviors - Really!

Presented by

Sheila C. Bentley, Bentley Consulting

Much of training, coaching, and workplace learning is focused on changing behaviors in order to improve performance.  But how often are we really successful at changing these behaviors?  And some of the behaviors relating to people skills are the most difficult ones to change.

This interactive session will introduce a process and explore ways to make those changes occur and will use the people skill of becoming a better listener as an example of a truly difficult behavior to change.  

Highlights include:

  • Adopting a process for changing behaviors.

  • Starting with the “why”—why do the behaviors need to change?  What is the desired outcome? 
  • Clearly specifying what the desired behaviors are, not just “Stop doing that!” 
  • Measuring the behaviors.
  • Providing feedback.
  • Holding people accountable for the behavioral changes.
