Good observations, Laura. One of the central principles of performance management is that people always do what they think is in their own best self-interest. The challenge for compensation people is to create a reinforcement system with a balance of consequences that best aligns personal motivations with organizational needs.

@Thank you, Jim. And... right???

P.S. Forgot to answer your last question. Suspect the best talent managers are the ones who graduate the key leaders. You shall know them by the results from their proteges. Maybe reward them with bonuses, increased freedom to guide/teach/train others, enhanced mentorship opportunities, more control over their own assignments, etc.
