Maslow’s observation-based hypothesis has been replaced by the SCARF scientific-based understanding of people’s needs.
Parents, coaches, teachers, and some bosses stand out in our life. They encouraged us, demanded the best from us, and showed us a better way. . . . I also remember some bosses through the years that were fantastic in caring about me and getting me to give them my all. I may be luckier than most in that I only recall one or two bosses back in my high-school and college days that I never got anything out of. Everyone else, was a positive influence in some way.
