In life, you will always get what you tolerate. If you tolerate mediocrity, you will get more of it. If you tolerate others to behave a certain way, they will continue to do so until you put your foot down.
If you are an entrepreneur and some of your employees are mediocre, you need to stop tolerating them. If you don’t, they will eventually ruin your business. They will cause your good customers and employees to leave.
Simply put, pay people for excellence instead of lousiness. Reward excellence instead of mediocrity.
If you are a boss and some members of your team are unproductive and mediocre, don’t tolerate them. They can slow down your team members.

That means your first option is not to get rid of your underperforming team members. Instead, you should help and empower them to raise the bar of excellence on themselves.
The best way to do so is to first raise the bard on yourself. You have to model excellence for them. You also need to coach and train them.
