Results focus measures the extent to which you drive tasks forward to meet deadlines and deliver quality work. The resources below should provide you with the steps for increasing or decreasing your level of results focus.
Higher levels of results focus indicate you take the initiative to move tasks forward effectively and go above and beyond to follow through and get the job done.
Lower levels of results focus indicate you may be too relaxed and struggle to remain productive in your work.
Excessive levels of results focus indicate you may be too focused on results and you may jump into things too quickly and can seem impatient.
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.

|Being distracted from productivity.||Setting clear goals with uninterrupted working time by setting a timer and putting all distractions away.||Taking the initiative to volunteer for projects.|
|Prioritizing other things over performance.||Determining what motivates you to succeed; optimizing your environment to aid in efficiency and focus.||Breaking up bigger tasks into smaller, more manageable components.|
