Change the Environment

Sometimes it’s easier and more helpful to change things instead of people. Our environment is a source of influence that we often underuse. Here are some tips for changing the environment to influence people to demonstrate the behaviors that are vital to achieving better results. 

  • Mind the Data Stream: Only create reports and charts that focus on vital behaviors. Put those charts in front of those who you want to demonstrate the behaviors.
  • Manage Space: To optimize social support, find ways to make interaction convenient.
  • Make It Easy: Use tools, furniture, and room layout to make vital behaviors easier and to make distracting behaviors more difficult.
