The power of habits in business
“The chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken”
Every form of individual and corporate transformation is dominated by how much we can truly change our habits. Our life is the sum of the decisions taken over the years and the behavioural, emotional and cognitive habits which we have consolidated.
Our habits become our lifestyle inside and outside of the company.
However, businesses often concentrate a powerful, but frequently underestimated, mixture of influence and resistance to change: Our behaviour and results are guided by our established routines over the years, but we are strongly influenced by the habits of others, by the dominant beliefs in each context, by the physical environment that surrounds us, from the relationships and from communications which are intertwined with the people we work with each day.
Business life and the way we achieve professional performance really only changes when we learn to intervene effectively in order to change habits. Both our own habits and those of the people around us.
For this reason, the ability to recognise and design new routines in support of individual or business improvement projects is one of the skills that distinguish Lean Leaders.
Lean Leaders are oriented towards both their own and their organisation’s growth and they know that this does not happen by itself or by giving orders left and right or prescribing actions that must be completed uncritically, but by simply asking themselves how to build new and more effective individual and organisational habits.

- How to recognise and identify positive and negative business habits
