Those who manage high performance teams tend to get focused on results. They look at productivity and activity. People over focus on outcomes and don’t focus enough on what’s going on in people’s brains and how they define the work that they do.
Unfortunately what managers often do is look at a high performer and then ask those who are performing at a lower level to mimic what the high performer is doing. Most of us realize this doesn’t work.
