(Team Orientation, Service Orientation)
Accommodation measures the extent to which you strive to meet the needs of others. Many of us have to put in effort to balance our level of accommodation for others and the resources below should provide you with the steps for increasing or decreasing your level of accommodation.
Higher levels of accommodation indicate you are willing to help others and approach conversations positively with customers and team members.
Lower levels of accommodation indicate you may struggle to keep a positive attitude when dealing with others’ concerns.
Excessive levels of accommodation indicate you may be too willing to address others’ needs, over-promise your time, and focus on others to the extent that you fail to meet your own needs.
Identify an opportunity area that you would like to change. Then, develop behaviors that you can Stop (unhelpful or limiting behaviors), Start (behaviors that you can begin now), and Continue (behaviors that you already do well) to improve in this area. Use the examples below to help create your own Stop, Start, and Continue behaviors.
|Focusing primarily on your own needs.||Considering those around you and how you can benefit them each day.||Focusing on shared interests to work better with team members.|
|Having a negative perspective that limits helping behaviors.||Spreading positivity by assisting others when possible and focusing on the good you are doing by helping.||Taking on more responsibilities when working with a group.|
|Working independently towards all of the goals.||Working with others to achieve the same goals by lending a hand when possible.||Asking for help when needed.|
