E3: What People Want - Maslows Theory of Human Motivation (Part 1)


In Episode 3 we discuss what is, perhaps, one of the most famous theories in management - the pyramid of human motivation by A.H. Maslow. Maslow's name has become synonymous with achieving motivation through gradual satisfaction of five categories of physio-psychological needs. In Part 1 we discuss the significance of Maslow's actual contribution, discover key but neglected aspects of his theory, and contemplate the extent to which this framework applies to different kinds of organizations. Join the discussion as we take a fresh look at the Theory of Human Motivation, unencumbered by decades of reinterpretation!
