  • Middle Performers understand and identify problems but don't always have the experience, training or confidence to come up with solutions.  They need more hands-on training.  Middle Performers are less likely to confront a peer because they know they are not a finished product themselves.
  • Low Performers point out what is wrong and neither offer solutions nor take ownership of solving the problem.  They blame someone or something else so that they don't have to do anything.  Rather than taking longer to learn, low performers just refuse to learn often using the phrase, “that's not my job”.
