The Business Focus Survey

The Business Focus Survey is designed to identify the natural focus of your energy and attention when operating a business. Your natural focus is based upon your natural behavior style. A behavioral style consists of a cluster of behaviors that you tend to use without conscious thought. Research has identified four distinct clusters of behavior. Everyone is capable of using all the behaviors in all four clusters or styles. Early in life, however, you discovered that one of these clusters or behaviors was most helpful in coping with your environment and meeting your needs. Therefore, you continued to use that cluster of behaviors consistently until they became habitual. You probably use them even when they are inappropriate and bring about outcomes that are undesirable. These natural behaviors determine how you focus your energy and attention in any given situation; hence, they determine your natural focus when operating a business.

Areas The Business Focus Survey can help you with:

Awareness and Potential

Although you developed a natural style early in your life, you have the potential to develop the behaviors in the other three styles as well. In fact, you probably have developed the behaviors in at least one other style to a considerable extent and use that cluster as a backup or supportive style. The Business Focus Survey can help you become more aware of the behaviors you tend to use and the outcomes they produce in various situations. It can also call your attention to the other clusters of behaviors that you may not be using, even though they might be most helpful to you in certain situations. The first step, then, to developing your full potential is to become aware of your current behaviors and business focus and the benefits you might gain by modifying your behavior and redirecting your attention when appropriate.

Flexibility and Versatility

In order to fully develop your potential, you need to become more flexible. Flexibility is an attitude. It is your willingness to change your habitual patterns and behaviors. If you want to get different outcomes, you will need to do some things differently. Making the choice to be open, to be willing to explore new ways of behaving, and choose new areas on which to focus your attention is the essence of flexibility. Any such changes, of course, need to be consistent with your personal values and direction.

Once you have developed a flexible attitude, you will need to work on the actual skills. Versatility is the ability to use different skills and behaviors as needed. The various skills required to interact effectively with others in various situations and to effectively operate a business need to be practiced and developed. The first time you ever got on a bicycle or a pair of skates, you were probably not very successful. You knew and were capable of performing all the individual behaviors necessary to cycle or skate, yet putting them all together effectively took some practice. The same is true with all complex skills. Developing your full potential will require some effort to practice and develop new skills and behaviors.

The objective is not to change your natural style or focus. It is to develop the ability to call upon any behavior when appropriate and to focus on each area of operating your business as needed. Your natural style and focus are an important part of the set of characteristics that make you a unique human being. You will want to preserve and honor them while, at the same time, developing other areas of your behavior to enhance your effectiveness. There are three general strategies you might use.

Refining and Capitalizing

One way to enhance your effectiveness is to refine the skills and behaviors you already use and take full advantage of those developed abilities. You probably tend to misuse your natural behaviors and any backup behaviors that you have developed by overusing them, using them in an inappropriate manner, or using them in inappropriate situations. Each cluster of behaviors includes some that are rarely, if ever, appropriate. They reflect our frustrations, aggressions, and negativity. They generally make matters worse. They tend to be our natural responses to pressure and stress. Yet we can learn to control them and to replace them with more effective and appropriate behaviors. We can also learn to express our natural behaviors and concerns in ways that are more considerate of the needs and feelings of others. We can learn to identify those situations in which our natural behaviors are inappropriate and those in which we tend to overuse them.
