Matt Hudson the author of The Saboteur Within – the definitive guide to overcoming self-sabotage, has twenty years in the professional and personal development field. Using humour and a light hearted approach, Matt draws on his extensive experience to crack some of the heaviest issues within your business.
Those spectacular scandals that highlight the evening news – in business, religion, government, and politics can usually be attributable to ‘behaviour’. If we just except that Jim in finance has ‘always been that way’ or Mary in sales ‘can’t help it!’, we are doing ourselves, our staff and our customers a great disservice.
Why? All behaviours are motivated and driven by an attitude. The person who understands the drivers behind the behaviour can then influence it.
Business loses cash every day due to behavioural issues – the bad things good people do when they believe the company expects or requires them to do things that are wrong or the acts of people trying to protect themselves from a system they do not respect. Silently, they undermine your business plans and create failures. This sabotage can often be running at a below conscious level, so the individual doesn’t act deliberately, although it may seem that way. Neuroscience would suggest that our brain functions primarily for survival, perhaps your employees feel under threat so their mind is taking steps to look after them?
In the boardroom a debate is ongoing about ‘communication and the unproductive behaviour of some staff’. The chairman wants everybody to work well together, on board a happy, profitable ship. Just as a board member is making a salient point, the meeting is interrupted by the chairman’s mobile phone, which he answers…
What message does this send out to the organisation about ‘communication and unproductive behavior’?
The beliefs, values, attitudes and assumptions at the top of an organisation create the culture that will feed the Saboteur Within your business and determine its outlook—what it finds important and relevant.
