Influencer, the Power to Change Anything. INTRINSIC SATISFACTION With individuals who believe that the required behaviors wont be pleasurable, simply immerse them in the activity Focus on the sense of accomplishment associated with the result. Revel in achieving for the sake of achieving Tap into peoples sense of pride & competition. And when it comes to long-term achievement, link into peoples view of what they want to be.
Influencer, the Power to Change Anything. INTRINSIC SATISFACTION As people slip further into appropriate behavior – even causing severe damage to themselves & others – help them reconnect their actions to their sense of morality by fighting moral disengagement In dealing with highly resistant people, talk with them about what they want & allow them to discover on their own the links between their current behavior & what they really want.
Influencer, the Power to Change Anything. PERSONAL ABILITY When it comes to complex tasks that matter a great deal to you in your quest to resolve persistent problems: Set aside time to study & practice new & more vital behaviors Devote attention to clear, specific, & repeatable actions Ensure that the actions youre pursuing are both recognizable & replicable Then seek outside help. Insist on immediate feedback against clear standards Break tasks into discrete actions, set goals for each, practice within a low-risk environment, & build in recovery strategies Make sure that you apply the same deliberate practice tactics to physical, intellectual, & even complex social skills.
Influencer, the Power to Change Anything. OPINION LEADERS Enlist social support to help you enact the vital behaviors. Particularly, engage the help of opinion leaders. They are employees &/or any body with influence & whore well respected, admired & connected with others. Enlist them & partner with them in your efforts to institute change more successfully.
Influencer, the Power to Change Anything. MAKE UNDISCUSSABLES DISCUSSABLE Encourage & support others to discuss on matters that are considered taboo. It is only through discussing these normally untouchable matters that we are able to discover the truths. Also, by doing so, we can then built a high trust level with others.
Influencer, the Power to Change Anything. SOCIAL CAPITAL Social capital refers to the profound enabling power of an essential network of relationships. Consider what help, authority, consent, or cooperation individuals may need when facing risky or daunting behaviors. Then, develop an influence strategy that offers the social capital required to help make change inevitable.
Influencer, the Power to Change Anything. ADMINISTERING REWARDS & PUNISHMENT Administering rewards & punishments can be a tricky business. When you look at the extrinsic motivators youre using to encourage or discourage behavior, take care to follow a few helpful principles:
Influencer, the Power to Change Anything. ADMINISTERING REWARDS & PUNISHMENT Rely on personal & social motivators as your first line of attack Let the value of the behavior itself, along with social motivators, carry the bulk of the motivational load When you do choose to employ extrinsic rewards, make sure that theyre immediately linked to vital behaviors.
Influencer, the Power to Change Anything. ADMINISTERING REWARDS & PUNISHMENT Take care to link rewards to the specific actions you want to see repeated When choosing rewards, dont be afraid to draw on small, heartfelt tokens of appreciation. Remember, when it comes to extrinsic rewards, less is often more.
Influencer, the Power to Change Anything. ADMINISTERING REWARDS & PUNISHMENT Do your best to reward behaviors & not merely outcomes. Sometimes outcomes hide inappropriate behavior If you end up having to administer punishment, first take a shot across the bow. That is, let people know what is coming before you drop the hammer.
Influencer, the Power to Change Anything. CHANGE THE ENVIRONMENT You are a product of your environment. So choose the environment that will best develop you toward your objective. Analyze your life in terms of its environment. Are the things around you helping you toward success – or are they holding you back? - Clement Stone
Influencer, the Power to Change Anything. STRUCTURAL ABILITY In developing a change strategy, we need to focus on things as our first line of influence. Given that things are far easier to change than people, & that these things can then have a permanent impact on how people behave, it is essential that we add the power of the environment to our influence of repertoire.
