Managing the Power of Expectations, 3rd Edition

It's a proven psychological fact. Through something that has come to be known as The Pygmalion Effect, people will perform according to the expectations others have for them. Limited expectations bring limited results, high expectations lead to exceptional results.

The good news is that you can teach your leaders how to tap into the positive effects of the Pygmalion Effect with their employees, improving productivity and morale in the process.

In The Pygmalion Effect training program, trainees get a complete overview of the Pygmalion Effect through real-life examples, dramatic vignettes and scenes from the classic movie Pygmalion, where individuals are transformed through the positive (or negative) expectations of another. The four ways managers transmit expectations to their subordinates -- climate, feedback, input and output -- are explained and depicted.

This 3rd edition also includes video footage from a Pygmalion training session at the Dunn Edwards paint company and a powerful reenactment of a Dunn Edwards success story, plus an interview with topic expert Dr. Robert Rosenthal.

  • Understand how positive/negative expectations create self-fulfilling prophecies.
