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.
To provide the most powerful learning experience, we recommend using the Employee and Manager Versions in tandem. Achieving Peak Performance can also be used individually as a self-paced learning tool. Either way, your employees will experience greater job satisfaction and improved on-the-job performance. The Manager Version includes discussion guidelines and sample dialogs.
