Does following sentence grammatically correct and what would it mean? People are as good as you want or make them to be. The idea relates to the encouragement provided by the managers or some sort of help.
 The phrase 'make them to be' is incorrect.
Say eg People are as good as you make them or want them to be.
However, the meaning is still not well-expressed.
I suggest
eg People are as good as you encourage them to be.

But different things happen to them.
Apply this to people.
Can you figure out the meaning now?
