Pygmalion effect

Have you ever noticed that when you expect more you get more?

Our expectations drive our actions. If we believe that something will surely happen we align our behaviour to make it happen. That’s a psychological effect called Pygmalion effect or self fulfilling prophecy.

Blaise Pascal, French philosopher and mathematician, said, “Treat a human being as they are, and they will remain the same. Treat them as what they can become, and they will become what they can become.”

So from next time don’t expect less. By expecting less you’ll be reducing your or your team’s chances to succeed.
