Why You Should Focus On Consistency Instead of Results


Are you not getting the results you’re after?

It might be that you’re not meeting your sales target or your customer satisfaction score. Maybe it’s another KPI that your business holds in high regard.

Perhaps the problem is your strategy. Are you focussing too much on the end result or implementing an approach based on consistency? While both have their pros and cons, focussing on consistently improving over a period of time rather than the final outcome will have better impacts in the long run.

Need more convincing? Here’s why you should change things up to get the results that you need for you and your business.

Consistency Helps You Improve

When you change your focus to consistency, you’re often implementing a strategy where you’re working on a series of skills, processes, or methods that you want to get better. A consistent approach would include a coaching and development plan that you run weekly to focus on one specific area.

It’s similar to focussing on a body part in the gym. The more you work at it, the better it gets. The more frequently you stick to your coaching and development plan, the more likely you’ll achieve your goals.

Being Consistent Sets You Up For the Long Term

Taking a consistent approach to coaching and development means that once you’ve got it to an optimal level, it’s a skill that is beneficial ongoing. Provided that it’s something that is being flexed every day, then your people will continue to utilise it to meet the goals of the team.

This allows you to turn your attention to developing another skill, process, or method. You’ll continue to improve your team’s capability and exceed your results in no time.

Focussing on Consistency Takes Your Mind Off Results

When you’re fixated on the results, you can become narrow focussed. Instead of looking for what’s best for the team and your people, you keep trying to reach a number that may or may not be attainable. This isn’t sustainable and is never a great strategy.

Change the focus of the results to be measurements of your consistency strategy. Use it as a guide to see if you’re on the right track or need to change up your coaching and development plan.

If You Focus on Consistency, The Results Will Come

Creating a strategy around consistency will deliver the results that you need. Not only that, but it will help develop a culture of continuous improvement that will help achieve even greater outcomes for you, your team, and your business.
