How many times have we seen behaviours affecting productivity in the workplace? Whether it’s someone constantly arriving late, someone showing a lack of initiative or an employee who cannot adapt to people or the changing environment, we can all admit that it can be a source of frustration. What are our goals? How can we inspire people to act? And how can I get these two people to get along? What if we hire the “right” people, but these hires are affected by the present culture? How can we get the behaviors we want and eliminate the ones that hurt our productivity and reputation?
In 1936, Kurt Lewin published the equation: B = f(P, E)…which states that behavior (B) is a function (f) of the person (P) in their environment (E). This become one of the most powerful concepts today.
Every individual comes with experiences, knowledge, skills and attitudes and this will determine how they respond to the environment they are in. If the right environment is created, employees have a better chance of making the right choices in terms of the behaviours they chose to exhibit. Getting individuals to make that choice means creating the conditions that would make it easy to do so.
