Workmates put in a worse performance when in the presence of a high-flier, according to researchers.

They have called this phenomenon the Tiger Woods Effect. At the peak of his prowess, Tiger was so good that his competitors would play worse rather than be inspired. The effect on golfers could apply just as much in a workplace.

In particular, the Tiger factor could affect offices where one worker keeps winning 'employee of the month' or regular bonuses for making the most sales.

Instead of trying to compete, other staff simply stop trying as hard because they don’t think they are going to win.
