Bosses: Concentrate on that extra-miler
A new study from the University of Iowa suggests that bosses can improve work teams' performance by motivating that person even more--rather than trying to make everyone in the team into an extra miler.
Put that person in a more central position--to inspire others.
Everyone becomes better, the researchers say.
Extra milers, they found, help out others on the team, but they also make constructive suggestions and make work easier that way.
All workers are not interchangeable--make the stars work for the good of the whole team.
