Topic time estimate: 5 Minutes

Let us add progress monitoring and social incentives to your resilience toolbox.

Progress statements

  • Rather than looking at your vision board and the progress of your entire change project, set smaller daily (or weekly) quotas.
  • These can be measured daily (or weekly) and will enable you to reflect on what did you achieve to date, today, and this month.
  • Start each day (or week) with a clean slate.  

  Build your own progress statement

  • Allow 5 minutes for this activity.
  • Open page 12 of your workbook. There is an example progress statement on page 13 if you need any inspiration.
  • Use the progress statement in your workbook to create your own progress dashboard to keep your motivation up over time.
  • Simply fill the fields with the micro-goals you want to track. Every micro- goal achieved means one step closer to your vision.
  • Once you are happy with your progress statement upload your workbook to the assignment below to progress with your course.

Social incentives

Recognising good behaviour helps you to form good habits. Dashboards allow you to celebrate and reward good habits on the road to your future-state. Social incentives drive your motivation by comparing your progress to the average of a group and the best-in-class achievement. Use social incentives to make someone’s day rather than ruining it.

Incorporate social incentives

To add social incentives, create a progress statement for you and your team.
In the absence of a team you can also compare the progress against your own average and best day/week/month.

Example

We see progress statements with social incentives used more often. For example your water or electricity bill uses progress statements with comparisons across your neighbourhood to encourage positive behavioural change in your utility consumption.
