Stretch Your Behavioral Thinking Into the 21st Century
By Richard A. Green, DDS, MBA (firstname.lastname@example.org)
In the last Pankey newsletter, I appreciated Bill Davis’s reflections on the Pankey Philosophy along with a reference to Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. It got me to thinking about a lot of people who have been studying the behavioral sciences and influenced us through the years, though sometimes we were unaware of their specific contribution to our growth and development.
Over the summer I read the book Drive: The Surprising truth about what motivates us by Daniel H. Pink. I encourage all of you to read this book—especially if you are working to facilitate growth in yourself and others (dentists, patients, team members, and family). The author takes you on a quick tour of the behavioral sciences during the past fifty or so years, starting with Maslow, moving to McGregor, Carl Rogers, then on to Peter Drucker and the Knowledge Worker (in Age of Discontinuity, 1968).
Pink references the work of Don Clifton (SRI and Gallup) and then moves through the remaining decades and into the 21st Century, sighting numerous research projects that reinvent, renew, refine and validate understandings from long ago (Aristotle to Pankey) and add some interesting new insights. When implemented, these insights will help you intentionally develop yourself and others.
Finding the Humor

When you make people laugh, they listen. When they listen, they remember you and what you’ve said. That makes you a communication genius. Before you say, “I am NOT funny,” think about all of the ‘tragedies’ that have befallen you, that you now talk about while laughing.
