Let’s look back at last week’s behaviour article… I suggested you focus on the smallest behaviours rather than the large behaviours such as screaming or aggression.
1st of all it’s easier to make a difference with small behaviours.
2nd if you focus on the large behaviours. You’re sending out a message even if you don’t know it is that anything lower than this is acceptable.
If you focus on the smallest of behaviours, what you are secretly saying is that anything bigger than that is unacceptable. And so in doing so you deal with the large behaviours anyway!
This week… the 1 reasons there’s behaviour (there’s just one).
It all comes down to ‘it works’. The only reason there is behaviour is because it works. Whether it’s screaming, defiance, aggression, being nasty, sibling rivalry. It all comes down to the fact that it works.
If you can work out how it’s working. It becomes quite easy to stop.
I know most of the reasons how behaviour works for a person and we’ll look into that next week. If you can’t wait until then get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m doing some coaching on behaviour and taking on just a few clients each month. Get in touch and we’ll see if you’re a good fit to work with me either with the elderly with dementia or with children.
Share this with someone who needs to see it and watch out for the next live video and article. Have a great week.
