Distributing Profits

As a business owner with a profitable business, the formula for distributing profits to the team is not a simple one. How to measure the qualitative and quantitative input of the players?  If we use the sports analogy, how do you weigh the contribution of a high scoring point guard versus the contribution of fine defensive forward?   I think we tend to overpay the scorers.

I vote for rewarding attitude and team spirit. Those employees who serve their fellow employees help to create a fertile culture of cooperation, which spills over into all parts of the business. Likewise, a poisonous attitude that refuses to change ought to be taxed!
