More on Maslow’s Hierarchy and Motivation

Motivation – Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs – Dyson Hierarchy of 7 Motivating Values
Dyson Motivating Values Gold.
If you studied psychology, management, or leadership, you probably studied Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs published first in 1943. You may find the article by Nichol Bradford interesting. I like her video message as well.
Maslow’s work is a staple in teaching motivation. I had this content at undergraduate, masters, and doctoral level courses. When I taught Principles of Management at Birmingham-Southern College, the text and additional research helped me dig deeper.
I love his model, which has five levels, though found ways to expand (seven levels) and improve on it, which is what inspired development of the Dyson Hierarchy of 7 Motivating Values. I stand on his shoulders though expand and provide a way for people to choose desired levels and plan for them. You can see the 7 Levels in the model provided.
In the workshop I teach, we dig deeper into the ascending values within each of the 7 Core Values so you can choose that motivates you–and those you want to motivate you. Then, you can list them in your plan and write a vision statement plus goal and action. This approach helps you implement the principles of motivation instead of just hear them. We can adapt this model for use with students as well so they learn and write to improve internalization instead of just hear.
