Abraham Maslow 



Abraham Maslow was born in New York 1908 and died in 1970.

He was a psychologist and behavioural scientist and was once referred to by Peter Drucker as "the father of human psychology".

He invented the term "hierarchy of need" to account for the roots of human motivation. This stated that once a person's basic physiological needs had been quenched, higher needs of love, esteem and fulfillment of personal potential would be released.

He went to the University of Wisconsin and between 1947 to 1949 left to work in industry.

He returned to teaching at Brandeis University Massachusetts where he became a professor. He wrote the book "Motivation and Personality."

 If the only tool you have is a hammer, you treat everything like a nail.
