One of the answers basically was: "fear them into working hard".
And while I don't like that it is an answer, it's a valid answer nonetheless. Now it gets downvoted and invisible because people don't like this management style rather then that it is not a good answer.
Fearing people into working harder might not be the nice thing to do, in quite a few circumstances it really is the way to go.
Is this a site for only nice answers for people who live in an ideal dream-world or is it also for realistic answers for people who live in the real world?
