Maslow's Hierarchy of needs & Social Media #RapidBI

In a recent article describing a conceptual conscious organisation John Renesch refers to Maslow's colleague Carl Rogers and the ability of people to become their potentialities. He goes on to describe a higher level of self-transcendence. "The Conscious Organization is one that is continually examining itself, committed to becoming as self-aware and responsible as it can at any given time in its life. It purposely creates a very low tolerance for dysfunction. It possesses the collective will to be vigilant about unresolved issues that might fester under the surface of awareness or otherwise go unnoticed like they do in so many organizations today." He quotes Einstein: 'A human being is part of the whole, called by us 'Universe,' a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desire and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty/ Carl Rogers had been one of the major influences on the concept of a people-centered approach to business and economics, as I describe as putting love and compassion into business, The article makes another interesting point. "The Conscious Organization is one where the lights are always ready to shine wherever darkness is found. It is a fit for people who aspire to be more conscious themselves and are seeking work environments that support and stimulate their individual growth as conscious beings. Everybody in the Conscious Organization knows the discovery process and the enlightenment that accompanies it is valuable and takes responsibility for calling attention to it." Application, in which social media had a role was to go head to head with organised crime over the issue of children in institutional neglect asserting that every child deserves a loving family home. The starting point was perhaps to argue against Friedman's view on the purpose of profit.

Maslow's Hierarchy of needs & Social Media #RapidBI

When it comes to the application of Maslow within an organisational setting, Richard Barrett and his Values Centre team have done some amazing work across multiple sectors and even at governmental level. The core model The Values Centre work with involves a format they refer to as the seven levels of consciousness. Many of us will resonate with specific levels within this range, some of us operate purely at survival level, others at a social responsibility level, the reality being though, that the aspiration is for congruence at all 7 levels. Here's the Values Centre evaluation of a high performance team, for reference.

Maslow's Hierarchy of needs & Social Media

I believe it is tumbler - this image seems older - they made a more tweety neon T for the thing shortly after. I notice there is no E, which I would place up on the top of the deal there. Sales and 'success' is a self actualization reality. The market place is a win/lose environment - and so is university - 'washing people out' is a classic 'university' practice. One of the things I have been surprised about ecademy ( lower case e? ) is that I see no 'courses' I see a big long work sheet, but no structured learning - like 'tweet physics' for six credits with Nick Tad or 'tumbler reality' with Mike Morrison - ya know? I would like that.. You probably arnt aware of the my 'likeoconomy' theories - I have spoke to many a raver and coffee shop hanger, jazz guitarists and neo-bohemians, but I have this post communist reality economy theory driven by a systemitized like methodology - basically you dont need someone to click you - the system recognizes your actions as liked by someone - surprise? Walking - you would make money per mile ( or seven miles? something like that - there would have to be meetings, every footfall seems excessive ). This is of course a seed - but the basic idea is there. World full of robots, replicators, and starships - where does our money go? Financial planning and efficiency is what made the robots, replicators, and starships to happen in the first place!? Well, wait.. were constantly watching - the system is - and we pay people to watch the system and improve it - we trick our kids into remaking the economy every generational gap with the intent of gleening yet more savings and accuracy out the the process - this - will last a 16 billion years - five day work week church on sunday is already amish. Those people refuse to believe that facebook is real. Fad. As if we have always had cars - ya smegma :yeesh: starship workday ( standard edition ) four day work week six hour days. Church everyday of the week like it started ( and still is I believe in the Vatican ), you can work overtime, but the scheduling is basically 'you do work for six hours, someone else does work for six hours, again again - thats all day folks - and nobody starts to suffer from fatigue - yeah - your gonna have those guys that *enjoy* the daily grind who work two full shifts ( I used to pull twelve hour shifts on the phones - I love talking to people ). Taking a third day off is also a great idea - family first - right? This work to the bone thing is either amish ( and they would never *overwork* someone ) or the meatgrinder. Ulcers, headaches, joint pain, back pain, malnutrition - all a symptom of the overwork philosophy - work smarter, not harder - right? and take your vitamins. ;) hehe sorry for the miniblog - I just do.

We all know about this but it's an idealised pattern that people do not precisely fit within.

A perfect argument why SoMe is waste of time. If you forget about the basics . . . the fundamental needs. :-) Btw . . . what is your take and what does 't' media in self-realization stand for ?
