Daniel Watson's curator insight, July 9, 2013 8:44 AM


There are not to many business owners, who have not at some time invested additional time and energy into a bad hire only to see no improvement, or who have poured more money into an idea that turns out to be a bottomless pit that never provides a return on the investment made.

Research has discovered that there is a reason why people continue to invest time, energy and money into trying to fix something of their own making, when any objective assessment of the situation would see a cutting of losses.

This excellent article, explains that committing additional time, energy and money to supporting a failing endeavour is caused by a trap known as escalation of commitment to a loosing course of action, and it outlines the causes of this escalation and provides four antidotes to halt such escalation before it gets beyond control.

A way out...

Jill Freeman at Rothwell International's curator insight, July 10, 2013 11:04 AM

When we make a bad decision, pride gets in the way of admitting it and wisely backing out of it.  So instead, we go months and years sometimes pushing forward with a decision that should have been reversed months ago. The psychological switch-up that is offered in this article is an excellent solution to helping our team-mates, colleagues or loved ones change their tactic while preserving their pride.

My daily life at work and play so often involves Socratic questioning - I never get bored and constantly on a learning curve! Thanks for sharing this great resource!
