Treating employees and colleagues better

The pygmalion effect describes the tendency for us to act the way people treat us.  If employees or colleagues are treated as trustworthy, they’re much more likely to act accordingly.

Humans are humans, so this of course doesn’t apply all the time.  But often enough, I’m amazed to watch people’s IQ increase by treating them like intelligent, trusted resources.
