An organization that rewards people lavishly for mediocre work might have a happy work force ... but probably an unexceptional one, too.

Consider: Princeton University recently told professors to award “A” grades to no more than 35 percent of students in any class: an effective rollback from the 44 percent to 55 percent they’d grown accustomed to.

Result: Princeton students report that they’re now working much harder to stay at the top of their classes.
