What is the Behaviour Change approach?

Behaviour Change approaches work with the understanding that individual, team and organisational behaviours are shaped by capability, opportunity and motivation. At Free Range Professionals we use a solution-focused approach to build on the strengths of individuals, teams and organisations to kick-start and sustain positive behavioural change. We also teach people the knowledge and skills to foster behaviour change in others. This can be anything from managers coaching staff to work more independently, to alcohol counsellors working with individuals to build new and healthier habits into their daily routines.

How do we teach Behaviour Change techniques?

  • Goal Setting Approaches
