A lot of team leaders tend to struggle at maintaining the balance between set high and low targets. While the former is good for setting the bar high, and further impress one’s superiors, the latter is seen as a talent management ploy, with employees seen happier. The thinking goes that with easier, more achievable targets, the team members feel welcome due to the lower levels of anxiety. However, the latter often does not work out.

Improvement goals tend to bring out the better among employees, than ones merely to maintain the status quo.
