In Change Anything Persistent endless challenges are often difficult to solve because they are rooted in human behavior. It seems that the best way to solve these problems is to understand what influences behavior and use that understanding to create a successful change strategy. Fortunately, there is a proven way to increase your influence so that you take the necessary steps to make significant changes. Influencer teaches how to develop strategies to solve difficult problems. Regardless of how well the behaviors are anchored, the client will learn the six sources of influence that determine the behavior and how using at least four of these sources to modify the behavior can increase your chances of success. Influencer teaches clients how to diagnose the causes of any problem and identify high leverage behaviors that, if the change leads to the desired results.
The program is based on six sources ranging from personal motivation and personal capacity, to social motivation and social capacity, which ultimately lead to structural motivation and structural capacity. Here are the recommended strategies for each source.
Personal motivation requires identifying harmful, unpleasant and unintended components of change. You should find ways to eliminate them or look for ways to make them more enjoyable. The therapist and the patient must create a link between the need for change and its fundamental values. Always be understandable about the mission and the true purpose.
Clients often do not have the knowledge, skills or strength to face challenges. In this situation, the therapist acts as a guide for the patient and helps him acquire all the skills, knowledge and strength he needs to control the disease. During the process of change, the therapist helps design the process to help the patient overcome any emotional, interpersonal or communication barriers that may hinder the process of change. The artificial environment could also help the therapist, as well as the patient, to know if they have adopted the new required behavior. This is how the therapist helps the patient develop the required personal skills.
Humans are social animals and our society greatly influences us. At this point, the patient must verify whether the people around him support the new behavior he has adopted. Check if you receive adequate support from your social circle (family and friends) to help you manage your problem. Ask yourself if my new behavior has influenced the people around me. The need here is to be part of this group that understands your concerns and, therefore, helps you in any way possible.
Social ability asks if you have someone close to help you in critical moments. In the life of an addicted patient, the crucial moment could be when the recovering patient finds a slippery place or a slippery person. Are the people around you well equipped and have the right knowledge and skills to handle it in difficult situations? Do you have a phone number from your therapist that could help or guide you during this vitally important situation? The possible obstacles must be well defined and, therefore, the social circle must have the right information, knowledge, skills and resources to deal with the critical situation. In short, relatives of a recovering addict should be able to cope in a friendly manner.
Whenever you are in a phase of adopting a new behavior, a very important point that should not be missed here is to reward you every time you do a good job and another way to penalize yourself for not doing so. behave appropriately In this way, you will allow yourself to get a reward by repeating the same behavior over and over again, which will become your habit after a while. A habit for a lifetime.
Finally, when it comes to structural capacity, the most important question is whether there are enough signs and reminders to stay focused. To answer this question, the best idea would be to make the appropriate changes in your environment so that it is healthy.
