NATURAL LAW OF INSPECTION
Do you inspect what you expect?
As a kid, did you ever have a teacher you KNEW didn’t actually read any of the papers you turned in or even look at the answers you put on your homework from the night before? You knew that as long as you turned the assignment in you’d be fine. She expected you to “do” it and sure enough you filled in the pages with something…
Often times we don’t put in effort if we don’t think anyone will “look over” what we’ve done.
Well, the next year you found yourself in the classroom of the teacher who not only “checked for completion” but actually INSPECTED your answers. Oh the horror! If you were like me, you found yourself fully completing those assignments to the best of your ability.
If we know someone is “inspecting” our work, we will put more effort into it.
She didn’t just EXPECT you to do the work, she INSPECTED the work…and your efforts showed it! We see this principle at play in our homes, offices, and beyond every single day. People tend to put forth effort based on whether or not they think their effort will be “checked”.
We all manage other people in some capactiy whether it be at home, on the field, in the office, or elsewhere. Where can you “inspect” more often so that your team steps up to do their best work? You’ll find the quality of participation you get will skyrocket with this principle at play!
