The 3 Things All Humans Crave and How to Motivate Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere

The 3 Things All Humans Crave and How to Motivate Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Abraham Maslow was right: Once we have food and shelter -- but before we can seek self-actualisation we must feel safety, belonging, and mattering. Without these three essential keys a person cannot perform, innovate, be emotionally engaged, agree,

or move forward.


What do you think? 1. Safety, 2. Belonging, 3. Mattering, 4. Mattering. Sure, 1-4 could crave all three, but it’s helpful to look at what is most essential, and then to provide that. You’ll get results faster.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

Safety, belonging, and mattering are essential to your brain and your ability to perform at work, at home, and in life overall. The more we have of them the greater the success of the company, the relationship, the family, the team, the individual.

I read Maslow' on Management which is not a well-known book, but it is a great read which built on Maslow's thinking and put it into a leadership and organizational context.

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But is it also out of date?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.
