Sometimes, high performers are highly sensitive to critique of any kind, especially after a poor performance. They bristle at even discussing the performance. They push away valuable feedback. As a result of being accustomed to performance success, this sensitivity serves as a defensive attempt to prevent others from lowering their confidence. Ironically, it is immediately after a weak showing that insight into what happened and why is so valuable. As a leader, how do you push high performers to reflect on poor performance, without them turning bitterly away from your intended help?
