Episode 117: Can't Do or Won't Do
Every decision is shaped by your skills and abilities to perform the task and your motivation to act or not act based on options available. One of the most powerful behavior tools in my toolbox is approaching challenging behaviors with a Can’t Do or Won’t Do approach. Assess the root of the issue by looking at if the work or demand is too hard and you need to adjust the task or there is not enough motivation or reinforcement and you need to adjust the reinforcement.
