Understanding Behavior for Success
We can improve our lives and embrace positive change by understanding our natural behavioral traits.
Knowing ourselves allows us to improve our personal and professional relationships, communication skills, and ability to deal with stressful situations. Let’s take a closer look at a few important aspects of behavior.
People find success in roles and situations where their behavior fits best. The first step is recognizing when we feel valued, focused, and productive. If we can identify what makes us tick, we can construct an environment beneficial to our growth, while avoiding triggers for negativity. This is often referred to as a Priority Environment.
If an employee consistently displays negative emotions and produces low quality work, they may be outside their priority environment. Work together to find discrepancies between their behavioral traits and responsibilities at work, then brainstorm solutions. How can their behavior be leveraged for growth? Once back in their priority environment, they’ll feel unstoppable! Not to mention a new respect for leadership who has shown they care.
Communication styles are another valuable benefit of behavioral awareness. They’re exactly what they sound like: how someone prefers to communicate based on their behavioral traits. Learning about communication styles improves patience, active listening skills, understanding of what’s being said, and the ability to get our own message across. Imagine a workplace where employees communicate efficiently and effectively while avoiding misunderstandings and escalations of conflict. Healthy communication fosters happier individuals who are more willing to engage and work together, driving increased production, quality, and ultimately, revenue.
Two people with opposite behaviors can have an incredible relationship if they understand each other. Lara Skutt and Melanie Benitez, two of our team members, have completely different traits, yet together they create the ultimate tag team.
Behavioral awareness can make all the difference when creating the dream team you’ve always wanted. Ready to build yours? We can help!
