"Proper management of the work lives of human beings, of the way in which they earn their living, can improve them and improve the world and in this sense be a utopian or revolutionary technique."

The pioneer behind the hierarchy of needs and the concept of self-actualization, Dr. Abraham Maslow was-and is-one of the world's most esteemed experts on human behavior and motivation. However, while perhaps most famous for his work in the area of humanistic psychology, his legacy of work encompasses much more, extending into the realms of business and management. Having explored and studied the relationship between human behavior and the work situation, Maslow translated the science of the mind into the art of management-an important interpretation first published in the far-sighted treatise, Eupsychian Management, and whose impact continues to be felt today. Now, this seminal work has been updated, primed to introduce new readers to-and reacquaint old admirers with-what some have called the renowned psychologist's best book. Bringing into perspective the lasting impact of Maslow's groundbreaking principles, Maslow on Management illustrates how they have withstood the test of time to become integral components of current management practices, such as continuous improvement, Theory X, and empowerment. Offering insight into using these and other tools to effectively tackle present-day business situations, from heightened competitiveness to globalization to emerging technologies, Maslow on Management covers a wealth of timeless topics, including:* Self-actualization-the freedom to effectuate one's own ideas, try things out, make decisions, and make mistakes* Synergy-what is beneficial for the individual is beneficial for everyone; individual success should not occur at the expense of others; align organizational goals with personal goals* Enlightened management policy-assume that all your people have the impulse to achieve; everyone prefers to be a prime mover rather than a passive helper; everyone wants to feel important, needed, useful, successful, and proud; there is no dominance-subordination hierarchyTo complement Dr. Maslow's original writings and to demonstrate how his forward-thinking ideas are being played out in today's business world, Maslow on Management features interviews with Perot Systems Chairman Mort Meyerson, NonLinear Systems founder Andrew Kay, Esalen Institute founder Michael Murphy, and other prominent figures who provide incisive commentary on subjects ranging from creativity in business to leadership lessons for the digital age. Epitomizing the genius of its author and embodying his elegant ruminations, Maslow on Management is still as important as it was when it first appeared. A true classic, this is essential reading for all managers....

    Loved the conversational style of this journal. Fantastic resource and a great read. Can't wait to explore some of his thoughts even more. So happy I finally got the opportunity to read it. Definitely worth it.

    A seminal work onhuman behavior in the workplace-now completely updated"At last! We have all been quoting Maslow for years and to now have such an excellent compilation of his seminal thoughts on management and organization comes like a timely gift from heaven. The values and principles he taught decades ago are even more relevant today." -Stephen Covey, author, The Seven Habits of Highly Successful People."Maslow's book is a readable, impressionistic masterpiece that extolled the virtues of collaborative, synergistic management decades ahead of its time. This edition reveals just how much the management thinkers of our day, including Peter Drucker, W. Edwards Deming, and Peter Senge, owe to Maslow, and how much, at the dawn of the twenty-first century, management can still learn from his insights." -Andrea Gabor, author, The Man Who Discovered Quality."Maslow's brilliant and humane perspectives are made easily accessible in this exceptional book. It's also quite humbling-why haven't we yet actualized the truths about human nature and the nature of work?" -Margaret J. Wheatley, author, Leadership and the New Science and A Simpler Way."Maslow's profound concept of self-actualization could generate a Copernican Revolution of work and society, catapulting us out of what future generations will look back on as the dark ages of management." -Jim Collins, coauthor, Built to Last.The pioneer behind the hierarchy of needs and the concept of self-actualization, Dr. Abraham Maslow was-and is-one of the world's most esteemed experts on human behavior and motivation.

    Abraham Maslow's genius comes through in his ability to reflect upon our human condition and his formulating theories to help us better understand each other. His Hierarchy of Needs was very influential for me and helped me better understand people's priorities according to their needs. I often look at other societies through these lenses in order to make sense of their thought process.

    Finding Maslow's 36 basic observations on management and critiques of Peter Drucker and interesting synopsis.

    Overwhelmingly dull. Sad, because I love Maslow's other ideas. Not that he doesn't make good points here, just....ugh. Had to slog through it.

    This is the sort of book you never stop reading...Just read it over and over...sometimes to remember things forgotten in prior passes, other times to find things missed.

    Great book. Sad that not much has change since Maslow wrote this. He apparently said that he feel that his journals were written for his grand-children. Perhaps another few generation I would said.
