Ditto that. One person with whom I work closely has a history of getting,
erm, upset easily when the pressure is on. I always try to boost his good
works and his ego by acknowledging them openly.

Another trick that I find works is to emphasize that you're part of a team.
Even if it doesn't feel that way sometimes, it can really help the overall
atmosphere.

FWIW,
