“The ultimate form of intrinsic motivation is when a habit becomes part of your identity. It’s one thing to say I’m the type of person who wants this. It’s something very different to say I’m the type of person who is this.” –James Clear
How can you create productive habits to sustain your energy and dial back the cycle of burnout? What can we do to help ourselves and others to get through the rapid fire of change? We know that we should cultivate productive habits in order to support our lives and goals, but how do we do it.
Today’s episode dives deep into the habit-forming cycle as Faye Davis talks with Gretchen Slenk, director at Southwest Michigan First. Gretchen specializes in human behavior and habits, and digs into the behavior-forming cycle of choosing a habit, identifying a cue or trigger for the behavior, and the importance of establishing a reward which will make repeat behavior more likely.
Join Faye and Gretchen as they share examples of success and stories of missteps in the process of creating new habits. They dive into why leaders should be encouraging healthy habit formation in themselves and their team, how to lower the risk of quitting, and what helps encourage lasting progress.
