These costs can add up, particularly when you consider the additional loss to your company in wasted time, energy, and resources when you don’t solve problems effectively. Tanya Menon and Leigh Thompson, experts in how organizations work, have developed a framework to help you understand why you fall into this trap, and how to escape it.
Five psychologies each of which substitutes spending for your own powers of management lead to wasteful spending:
1. Mindless spending: throwing money at a problem to avoid thinking about it;
2. Ego spending: squandering resources to make yourself look good;
3. Please-like-me spending: wasting time and money to avoid conflict;
4. Talk-to-me spending: buying expensive technologies to help people communicate; and
5. Follow-me spending: using financial incentives to motivate people
To break these habits, Menon and Thompson show how you can use your smarts as a manager to find solutions. By consciously observing waste and identifying hidden value, widening your mind-set beyond ego, courageously negotiating with others, encouraging meaningful interaction, and transforming people with positive values and relationships rather than cash, you can overcome these psychological barriers and find the value that already exists in your organization and yourself for free.
