To truly transform an individual, a team or an organisation takes more than training that instils new skills and knowledge. Interventions that stimulate an appetite for change and sustain its momentum, support the acquisition of new behaviours, and discourage relapse are most likely to create enduring behaviour change.
We call our approach Stage-based Behavioural Transformation (SBT)® and we are indebted to eminent psychologists, James Prochaska, John Norcross and Carlo DiClemente. Their work in helping others overcome habituated behaviours showed us how individuals move through five emotional ‘stages’ as they seek to change ingrained and unhelpful behavioural patterns :
Where change management focuses on the system, SBT® focuses on the individual and the interpersonal. We help leaders and managers in organisations around the world to acquire, practise and master the leadership behaviours that enable them to be more skilful and productive. Our programmes and coaching return them to their organisations better able to:
- understand the detail and impact of their compatibility and behavioural strengths and areas for development
- inspire, role-model, challenge and coach others more effectively
- improve their impact on others’ performance
- flex their leadership styles to accelerate business success
