“I am too busy to stop.”
“I have work that must get done.”
“It’s not my decision.”
The Answer is the JMR Stop Program
What is the JMR Stop Program?
- It is a best practice tool that says one needs to make a “habit” (no different than brushing your teeth), of stopping (pausing), reflecting, and seeing reality and opportunities that are disguised by the noise and business of everyday life.
- The program can be for individuals, a department or a company program that drives a discipline and evaluates, discontinues activity that isn’t beneficial, and then creates the space and time needed to establish new focus, habits, and growth.
- The JMR Stop Program can initiate the process of making continuous improvement and change a positive, needed habit (read this: www.johnruh.com/brushing-your-teeth).
4 Common Problems the Stop Program Can Address:
- A lack of focus on the most beneficial work and action:
Eliminating “ what we’ve always done” activities that are no longer truly needed creates more effectiveness.
- No “Bandwidth”
Stopping creates more time/space so individuals/teams can look forward, anticipate, and proactively adjust strategies, approaches, and processes and minimize “survival mode” management.
- Reduce/eliminate “survival mode” management!
This method of management threatens the security of both the company and its people and effectively blocks progress and growth.
- Decrease Resistance to change:
Security oriented individuals as well as “people pleasers” can adjust faster and with less resistance when change is introduced through programs. Research indicates that approximately 64% of the population falls into this behavioral pattern. Without programs, change is only sustainable during crisis situations.
How do you Initiate this program/habit?
JMR’s 3 Step Process:
Step 1. Make a declaration/commitment to yourself/Team to “Stop”!
Without a commitment and a test/trial period of the stop program for a reasonable, sustained period, one most likely will not achieve any lasting results. It cannot be the “flavor of the month”.
Step 2. Use a proven tool to better understand behavioral tendencies.
The DISC assessment, an internationally used, proven tool to self-identify behavioral and communication tendencies, increases awareness of what may be holding one back to pause, reassess, and set new positive habits. When one understands themself better and accepts their hard-wired behavioral pattern, they can start the process of supporting themselves/team wisely.
Step 3. Create your personalized program/approach, with our help.
Design your program effectively, in a way that works for your or your team’s behavioral needs and aligns well with your culture to make it a success.
JMR’s 30+ years of hands-on research (that includes 10,000 DISC profiles locally, nationally, and internationally) suggests that organizations are comprised of high proportions (often 50%+) of individuals who are slow to change. The initial step to address this issue is to conduct as many discussions as needed to present why the status quo is not a safe and secure way for the team/company to proceed. Everyone needs to know their security is at risk without change and a commitment to continuous improvement as a daily habit.
