How to Give People Praise at Work

·

Interesting statistic in this post from the Harvard Business Review on the effects of giving positive feedback for a skill or trait.

“…people who had been praised for their decision-making skills were 40% more likely to escalate their commitment to a bad decision (in this case, a bad hire) than people who hadn’t been praised. But those who had been praised for their creativity, rather than their decision prowess, were 40% less likely to escalate their commitment than those who hadn’t been praised, says Adam Grant of The Wharton School.”
