What Maslow’s Hierarchy Won’t Tell You About Motivation

What Maslow’s Hierarchy Won’t Tell You About Motivation | Skye: Leadership-Matters | Scoop.it

Despite the popularity of Maslow’s Hierarchy, there is not much recent data to support it. Contemporary science — specifically Dr. Edward Deci, hundreds of Self-Determination Theory researchers, and thousands of studies — instead points to three universal psychological needs. If you really want to advantage of this new science – rather than focusing on a pyramid of needs – you should focus on: autonomy, relatedness, and competence.

Sue Gaardboe's curator insight, November 28, 4:55 PM

This struck such a cord with me.  I can pin point the moment when I recognised that my life was my responsibility, and can see the energy that flowed from that realisation and how it's influenced every decision and action in my life. We introduce the idea to our students in a general way, (Why is it your Mum's fault that you left your homework at home?Isn't it your responsibility?) but certainly don't help them to appreciate it deeply in their lives.

Why You Should Play on Your Strengths--Not Focus on Your Weaknesses - Lolly Daskal | Leadership and Personal Development | Skye: Leadership-Matters | Scoop.it
If you want to improve your leadership, you must learn what your strengths are and align yourself with them.

Via Raghunandan SV
Morag Barrett's insight:

This is so true, most of us are successful "in spite of" weaknesses. If they are career limiting then you can't ignore them, however in many cases focusing on taking strengths from good to great results in a better outcome - and is more fun!

Ali Godding's curator insight, December 16, 3:02 PM

One of my recent posts is about strengths: http://sco.lt/971uRV I agree with Lolly that keeping your focus on strengths and not spending too much time worrying about your weaknesses is the way forward towards success and is FAR more energy giving. Sometimes easier said than done though - especially for us 'be perfect' types! For more like this subscribe here: https://aligodding.leadpages.net/scoopit/
