Mediocre performers:

  • Sap managers’ energy so they have less time for top performers
  • Reduce quality of group discussions, lowering teams overall IQ
  • Force others to develop ways to work around them, reducing efficiency
  • Drive away staff who seek excellence
  • Show the team you accept mediocrity, thus multiplying the problem
