The external environment in which people are trying to change behavior can include many things, all of which can impact their ability to change. Sometimes, the physical environment, such as office design, can play a role. Other times, factors such as team dynamics, organizational culture, and the support of key colleagues can be factors. Even work–life balance and the state of individuals’ personal relationships outside of work can affect their ability to change behaviors in the workplace. The list of factors is long, because pretty much everything around individuals can affect them.
