I'm the curious type of person that likes to learn more, do things in less time, do things better, etc. I take that as a personal challenge and I honestly love it. Of course, it IS a challenge, not always easy and it frustrates me sometimes not to be able to apply this, or even force to do other stuff... but that's another subject.
I would love to introduce people to this situation, and knowing that they'll auto improve and they'll get better at what they do, so they'll be better themselves and more valuable to me and to the company (plus, the feeling of self-improvement).
But... how do I motivate someone to self-improve? Would it be ok to start through criticism of mistakes (in a very polite and soft way, of course)? Or just pointing out good things and pretending the wrong ones do not exist?
Also... is this possible for everyone, or there are people who just won't catch it?
