People are doing the best they can given their current context. If you think they are not then you don't understand their context.

Try to understand why they're not doing their best, does something hinders to their motivation? Are they stressed[1]? Do they have everything they need? Do they have other priorities?



“They’re all doing the best they can, under the circumstances. If I don’t think they are doing the best they can, then I don’t understand the circumstances.”

~ Becoming a Technical Leader, Gerald Weinberg
