This course will give you better understanding of the importnace of Abraham Maslow's "Hierachy of Needs Theory" and how it establish the groundwork for understanding motivational behavior in individuals and how it can be applied personally and in the work place. Maslow’s hierarchy of needs adapts well to the dental practice. By arranging these needs in a pyramid, they can be used to motivate team members. Its institution by the employer contributes to more harmonious and productive team members and plays a vital role in providing great customer service to patients.
