Hierarchy in Self Insight and Professional Growth

Maslow made some great points when he commented on the “hierarchy of needs.” As stated by his viewpoint led him to believe that needs follow a formation, which all plays into professional growth. This structure involved a “lower level needs” that started with the fundamental continued existence that must be satisfied “before higher level needs guide a person’s behavior.” One of the highest levels is the need for “self-actualization.” (Psychology; pg. 326)

Self-actualization, is the flourishing personal development that necessitate for one to employ personal skills and abilities to attain and maintain professional attitudes. Personally, I can say that one must exercise meditation, yoga, self-talk, and other instinctive techniques to accomplish this level of realization. 

In the workplace, many people have higher levels of needs that commence with basic survival skills. Other people are on the lower need scale. The ones on this scale tend to have inner guides that direct them toward professional growth. We see that these individuals that have higher needs are channeled down the right course while the lower level needs are not. With this in mind, we can see that someone could without problems form predisposed opinions of another, and make obvious their stereotype behaviors that interject a work environment. To some of us, labeling or categorizing others is one of the largest problems we all have to deal with, and shape the way one thinks, which is brought out in the open in their behaviors each day. 

People often develop hostile attitudes when they are not treated justly. With so much competition in the world, as well as the low morale issues, lack of respect, etc, it is hard on all of us, which is why equal fairness should be demonstrated each day. 

We all must develop professional behaviors, thinking, and so on to rebuild skills that were torn away by the entire negative that takes place in our world. We must reform our thinking and behaviors while staying clear of negative people. 

Despite that, these rules exists many employees, employers, and even the law ignores these rules. Mary also tells us “In the work environment, the supervisor, owners, or managers are responsible for motivation. The morale on the job will determine the success, attitude, and dedication of the employees. 

Being positive, honest, and treating employees with respect will create a positive work environment with working and willing employees. Introducing new ideas, teamwork including supervisors participating, rewards and understanding personal and business issues will motivate staff to meet deadlines, be attendance conscious, and adhere to policies and procedures. A motivating supervisor with a positive attitude will gain the respect of the employees and the willingness for their contribution to be complete and concise.”
