Laughing Your Way to a CAN-DO Attitude
George Swan, MPH
Now a retired hospital administrator, George explains how his career has been laced within the framework of Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. Better yet, this framework can be held as a hierarchy of values, or consciousness of “S” (Survival, Safety, Social, Self-Esteem, Self-Transcendence). Performance at each level can be developed logically until reaching Self-Transcendence, where we can “flip” from “me” to “We.” The same hierarchy applies to a group, organization, community, country or even the whole planet. Very useful for coaching individuals as well as organizations.
