Why Replacing Hierarchies is the Future of Work

Why Replacing Hierarchies is the Future of Work | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Worry less about the future of work and notice what is happening right now.


If we invest time today on areas that are holding back our workplaces now, we’ll be better equipped to adjust to the future of work.


One area we need to invest time to change is workplace hierarchies. They are slowing down a business’s agility to respond to dramatic shifts in the marketplace . Managers need to invest time switching to a culture that emboldens employees and managers to work together to redefine their working relationship.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

The manager-employee paradigm of the 20th century is outdated. Replacing hierarchies is the future of work.

Maslow’s Hierarchy Of Needs Gets a Makeover

Maslow’s Hierarchy Of Needs Gets a Makeover | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Abraham Maslow’s Pyramid of Needs is one of the iconic images of psychology. The simple diagram, first introduced in the 1940s, spells out the underlying motivations that drive our day-to-day behaviour and points the way to a more meaningful life. It is elegant, approachable and uplifting.


But is it also out of date?


That’s the argument of a team of evolutionary psychologists led by Douglas Kenrick of Arizona State University. Their new formulation is intellectually stimulating, but emotionally deflating. “Self-actualisation,” the noble-sounding top layer of Maslow’s hierarchy, in their model has not only been dethroned, it has been relegated to footnote status.


It has been replaced at the top with a more mundane motivation Maslow didn’t even mention: “Parenting.”

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

What are the fundamental forces that drive human behaviour? A group of evolutionary thinkers offer an answer by revising one of psychology’s most familiar images.
