Achieving Peak Performanceby Mary Blitzer Field
What does it take to increase a person's satisfaction at work? Using the well-known, time-tested model of Maslow's Hierarchy of Human Needs, Achieving Peak Performance provides front-line supervisors and managers at all levels with a simple yet powerful tool for identifying employee needs. Using this information, managers are then able to positively influence employees toward higher performance levels.
Maslow's theory offers a very practical way of looking at motivation issues for individuals or teams. This approach makes good business sense: provide employees with goals they find meaningful and engage them in activities that satisfy their individual needs, and they will naturally feel motivated to perform at higher level.
The employee version includes the self-assessment, FAQ, and action planning. The manager version and facilitator guide includes discussion guidelines and sample dialogs, FAQ, action planning, sample training design, case studies, transparency masters (tear-out pages from the back of the facilitator set that you can copy to create your own overhead materials), and more.
