The deepest principle in human nature is the craving to be appreciated.”Mark McCormack, Author and sports entrepreneur”Psychologists tell us that money is a satisfier, not a motivator… Recognition is. That’s why we do what we do… Recognition is critical to self-esteem. Without it, we feel undervalued, even insignificant. Money is nice, sure. But once you establish a basis of monetary rewards, without the accompanying verbal and social affirmation, the employee will quickly become disgruntled and ask for more. Eventually, more will never be enough.
