It’s all Greek to me!

Pygmalion, Galatea, and the Golem Effects all have a profound impact on our day-to-day lives, but most of us probably don’t even realize it! Today that all changes. I’m sharing a little bit about what I know about these effects, and then I’ll briefly touch on our superpower: Willpower.

A definition or two …

Pygmalion Effect: The high expectations a person of influence has of us results in higher expectations of ourselves, and thus better performance outcomes.

Golem Effect: (The opposite of the Pygmalion Effect.) The low expectations a person of influence has of us results in lower expectations of ourselves, and thus poor performance outcomes.

Galatea Effect: Our own high or low expectations of ourselves without regard to outside influences.

Navajo Proverb:

Thoughts are like arrows: once released, they strike their mark. Guard them well or one day you may be your own target.
