This groundbreaking and revolutionary book explores a fundamental question for managers in today's rapidly changing, and often perplexing, business environment: What truly motivates people to function and perform at their highest capabilities within the framework of an organization? Is it man's "intrinsically" competitive nature, as Western society has believed since Darwin's time? Is it a purely materialistic craving for money, power, and status - a view that seems a lot less compelling in the 1990s than it did in the 1980s? Or is it something else - something that reveals human nature in a new and entirely different light? Combining the human wisdom of the East with the corporate savvy of the West, Thresholds of Motivation shows how fostering self-actualization and personal growth among your workers can reap important benefits for your company - benefits ranging from increased productivity and loyalty to a reduction in absenteeism and disciplinary problems. Discover: the process by which human nature unfolds itself to its full potential; the respective roles of both an individual and the corporation in facilitating this process; the crucial link between the quality of endeavor and the stage of development of a human being; what an "East-West model of motivation" - based on a combination of Western psychology and Eastern philosophy - looks like, and how it is best implemented; why good managers are "gardeners, " not "puppeteers, " and much more!
