People are prone to meet the expectation you place on them. The lower your expectation the less of the result you will get, the higher your expectation the better the result.

In the Navy, too often we underestimate the ability of our Sailors and leaders who are afraid to push people to function outside of their comfort zone fail to appropriately challenge them. Give them a chance, the training and the means to succeed and let them run with the ball; they will often surprise you.
