Principles of Change
Changing Behavior by Changing Beliefs
14
CHARACTER COUNTS! 4.0 ©
Josephson Institute 2013
Goal: Improve society and lives of
children by improving their values,
character and conduct.
Improvement is
positive change.
Most effective way to change someone:
Instill or strengthen values that
determine choices.
15

“If you want to change the world,
you eventually have to change how
people behave.”
“And if you want to change how
they behave, you have to first
change how they think.”

Josephson Institute 2013
Change theory as a key student
development strategy
All growth, including
acquisition of new
information, skills, and traits,
is change.
The hardest growth challenge
is when one must replace a
strongly held belief, a way of
looking at things (a mindset,
perspective or attitude), or a
way of dealing with situations
(a disposition) with a new
belief, attitude or approach.
Personal growth occurs when
a student replaces beliefs and
attitudes that hamper or
prevent academic or social
success with beliefs that
promote behaviors that create
success.
The best way to improve a
student’s life is to change
their behavior by changing
their beliefs and attitudes.
17
CHARACTER COUNTS! 4.0 ©
Josephson Institute 2013
Behavior is the result of values, beliefs,
mindsets and attitudes that dictate our
actions, often at a subconscious level
We possess many beliefs and attitudes
that we did not choose – they were
instilled by parents or other social and
cultural forces and adopted without much
reflection.
A primary goal of education is to develop
critical thinking skills so that we exercise
more control over choices and make
decisions based on reason and logic
rather than instinct and emotion.
18
CHARACTER COUNTS! 4.0 ©
Josephson Institute 2013
Our attitudes and mindsets affect
our actions and reactions
We may not choose our
immediate emotional reaction or
initial attitude but we can choose
to hold on to or change how we
react to or feel about a situation

People will not change
entrenched attitudes or
behaviors unless they
believe two things:
It’s worth it.
• It’s worth the effort.
• What I will get is more
valuable than what I
give up.

CHARACTER COUNTS!®
is about Change
The idea of changing the character of an individual or the culture of an
organization is so daunting that it sometimes doesn’t seem possible.
Changing beliefs, however, even about important things, is much more doable.
The essence of CHARACTER COUNTS!® 4.0 is to instill or strengthen positive
beliefs that promote desirable behaviors, and to modify or replace negative
beliefs that support undesirable behaviors.
An effective CHARACTER COUNTS! implementation embeds positive values
(beliefs) in the DNA of individuals and their institutions.

What makes a class/school safe?
In addition to academic content, what should your
students learn that will equip them to be positive and
engaged in the learning process and in so doing
develop life skills to function as an adult? Think
Knowledge – what students should know and
understand; Skills – what students should be able to do;
Values – what students should value and believe, and
Traits – what characteristics and attributes of character
students should possess.
What are the positive values you would
like to see more of on the part of your
students? What are specific attitude and
behaviors you would like to see less of?

Why the change?
Schools are inundated with standards, mandates, and
demands as their resources shrink
Supplemental programs create demands on time and
challenges re: integration with basic school curricula and
with other programs
Many states started mandating SEL standards and some
have added character development
Juggling and sustaining multiple supplementary programs
detracts from unified focus
When we raise our kids we don’t separate our efforts or
lessons in the academic, social, emotional and character
domains – we do it all together

What we see is not necessarily what is
What we see is affected by our vantage point and we often do not see
all that is before our eyes
The brain does some amazing things to fill gaps and correct. The brain
adopts strategies and looks for patterns
The brain also can be fooled by illusions. What we see can be a
distorted image of objective reality (optical illusions)
We can teach the mind to see what it did not originally see – e.g., look
for the white spaces, alternative images, and illusions

If you change your perspective you change
the way you experience the world.
Three stonecutters were asked
what they were doing.
• The first man replied: “I am making
bricks from this stone.”
• The second said: “I am making the
foundation for a building.”
• The third answered: “I’m building a
cathedral.”
So what? What difference does it make
how a person looks at his work?

What We Need to Teach Students
To think of all choices in
terms of potential
consequences to
themselves and to others
(stakeholders).
Every decision has
consequences.
Decision-Making
The higher the stakes,
the more need there is
for careful decision
making
The greater the potential
consequences, the
higher the stakes.

Decision-Making Model
Ethical decisions take into account the
interests and well-being of everyone likely to
be affected by your actions (stakeholders).
Ethical decisions put the core values of
Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility,
Fairness, Caring, & Citizenship above
others.
If it is necessary to violate one core ethical
value to honor another, do what will produce
the greatest good in the long run.
