How do we define behaviour change?

Behaviour change is evidenced by people doing things differently and doing different things.

This short easily remembered and repeated phrase describes what we mean when people demonstrate a different behaviour resulting from a learning intervention.

What exactly do we mean by behaviour change?

Behaviour change is evidenced by a person demonstrating repeatedly new behaviour and activity in their workplace that can be observed and measured. We essentially acknowledge and recognise these types of behaviour:

  • Verbal - what we say

  • Process - what we do

Our approach to achieving behaviour change is through our three stage learning journey structure which is applied to all our delivery methods, in the classroom, virtually or digitally.

Knowledge acquisition

ensures participants achieve the context and underpinning knowledge required to progress onto the skills development and behaviour change stages of their learning journey.

Skills and practice

ensures participants begin to apply and practice their skills development and behaviour change supported by a Huthwaite subject matter expert and facilitator.

Workplace transfer

ensures participants continue the application of skills development and behaviour change in their workplace. All three stages are crucial; however, the workplace transfer is where the real return on investment manifests itself.

How do we deliver behaviour change?

We have four core options for the delivery of behaviour change to a participant. All have the knowledge acquisition/skills and practice and workplace transfer stages included in some form.

The approach adopted depends largely on who will have the main responsibility for achieving behavioural change, particularly in the crucial workplace transfer stage. This could be:

  • an individual participant working autonomously

  • Huthwaite supporting the individual throughout the learning journey

  • the organisation supporting the individual throughout the journey (coach/manager support)

  • or a combination of all three - joint responsibility

We work consultatively with our clients to agree the best approach to adopt.

What's the best way to learn new skills and change behaviours?

Huthwaite use learning journeys. These involve different phases and inputs. Each designed to be the most effective way of acheiving a learning goal.

Each input is then followed by an opportunity to practice, gain feedback and apply the new skills to a realistic situation.
