In this course, Stacey Zackin shares how to both empower employees, and provide a more rewarding experience for you as a coach. After taking this course you will have gained new insights, attitudes, and tools that will help you more effectively influence positive change, by not only successfully coaching individual colleagues, but also being able to generate a coaching culture throughout your organization.

Title: Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs & Employee Motivators
Module: Employee Psychology
Duration: 0:43

Abraham Maslow theorized that man is motivated by the desire for self-actualization, of reaching our fullest potential. His hierarchy has been applied to management to help demonstrate that in contemporary times, people are no longer solely motivated by having their survival needs met…meaning, that money and extrinsic rewards are no longer the driving factor in performance. People expect more from their workplace than a paycheck, they see it as a place to have certain social, psychological, and emotional needs met. Even their spiritual needs, not religious, but the desire to belong to an environment and connect with a purpose that ignites one spirit and makes them feel like a valuable participant who makes a meaningful contribution.
