Simple Way to Make People Exponentially More Productive

Simple Way to Make People Exponentially More Productive | Home Interior Design | Scoop.it
Productivity may not depend on who we recruit but what we expect of them.
Home Design Network's insight:

Everyone thinks they can spot talent even though all the evidence suggests it's impossible. And maybe even irrelevant.

Productivity Secret

A classic psychology paper, Pygmalion in the Classroom, describes a study in which elementary-school students were given a test to identify the most able. Their teachers were told which pupils showed outstanding promise and, lo and behold, by the end of the experiment those children started performing exceptionally well. The catch? The test was nonexistent, and the children had been chosen entirely at random. What made the difference was that their teachers now believed in them.

Twenty-five years later, an Israeli researcher wonders if the same Pygmalion effect might apply to teams. Working with trainee military platoons, some leaders were told that their men had particularly high potential. No individuals were singled out; the leaders simply believed they were working with exceptionally promising material. Raising leaders' expectations caused improved performance of approximately 20 percent. Just imagine a 20 percent productivity improvement--achieved by no other means than by believing in your people.

Home Design Network's insight:

One of my most favorite talks on Ted.. This is a powerful argument crafted by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie about the danger of a single story. She narrates how as a child she grew up reading American and British literature and could not connect with the elements of the stories as they were out of her experience such as ginger beer and the weather. However, she accepted them and wrote about them because that was how she understood literature from the texts she had read. The characters in her stories she wrote in her childhood were white and blue-eyed. Her mental perception shifted when she encountered African writers and started writing about things that she had a personal connection with. Upon her move to America, she began consciously identifying herself as African, something she had never done before while growing up in Nigeria. She reminds us to not form evaluations of people or events from a single story.

Owner of Hawaii's Liliha Bakery says he underestimated power of social media: Slideshow - Pacific Business News

Owner of Hawaii's Liliha Bakery says he underestimated power of social media: Slideshow - Pacific Business News | Home Interior Design | Scoop.it
Liliha Bakery on Nimitz Highway will have its "formal" grand opening beginning Friday.
Home Design Network's insight:

I have loved Liliha bakery for years

Peter Kim has issued a “heartfelt apology” to customers who received “unsatisfactory service” during Liliha Bakery’s opening of its second location on Nimitz Highway.

Kim said the July 9 opening was supposed to be a “soft” one, but people came out in droves, catching the restaurant way off guard.

The reason? “We underestimated the power of social media,” Kim said.

The restaurant was expecting to serve 200 or so people per day at the beginning. It ended up serving around 1,500, Kim said.

1500 customers in one day.. if we all could be so lucky........

Your employees represent and relate your brand to customers both online and off. Give your employees the training, information, and inspiration to become committed brand advocates, and customer experiences will improve along with business outcomes.
Home Design Network's insight:

Research shows that the two strategies should be intertwined, with company content targeting not only your buyers, but also the men and women who tell your story on the sales floor, telephone, or social channels day in and day out.

At some stage of the journey, customers will speak to or interact with one of your employees, even if they don’t meet face to face. When employees have a deep understanding of your products and services and a true appreciation for your brand, their enthusiasm will be infectious. And beyond building excitement, they will be able to answer specific and complex customer questions, and tell compelling stories rooted in their personal experience.

Survey Says: Employee Engagement Is Good for Business
