SELF-ACTUALIZATION AND THE UTILIZATION OF TALENT.
FRENCH, JOHN R.P.; MILLER, DANIEL R.
THIS STUDY ATTEMPTED (1) TO DEVELOP A THEORY OF THE CAUSES AND CONSEQUENCES OF SELF-ACTUALIZATION AS RELATED TO THE UTILIZATION OF TALENT, (2) TO FIT THE THEORY TO EXISTING DATA, AND (3) TO PLAN ONE OR MORE RESEARCH PROJECTS TO TEST THE THEORY. TWO ARTICLES ON IDENTITY AND MOTIVATION AND SELF-ACTUALIZATION AND SELF-IDENTITY THEORY REPORTED THE RESULTS OF THE WORK ON GENERAL THEORY WHICH INVOLVED--(1) SEARCH OF THE LITERATURE AND PRODUCTION OF SUMMARIES OF THE MOST RELEVANT MATERIAL, (2) CONFERENCES, AND (3) MEETINGS OF RESEARCH TEAMS TO REFINE SPECIFIC HYPOTHESES FOR RESEARCH PROPOSALS. IN FITTING THE THEORY TO EXISTING DATA, THE INVESTIGATORS ANALYZED DATA FROM A PILOT PROJECT ON INDUSTRIAL SUPERVISORS AND ANOTHER PILOT PROJECT ON METHODS OF TRAINING SELF-IDENTITY AND SELF-ACTUALIZATION. THE MAJOR FINDINGS SUPPORTED THE HYPOTHESIS THAT INCREASES IN COMMUNICATED OBJECTIVE PUBLIC IDENTITY WILL PRODUCE INCREASING CHANGES IN SELF-IDENTITY. FOUR PROPOSED RESEARCH PROJECTS WERE DESCRIBED--(1) STUDY OF THE EFFECT WHICH THE FIT BETWEEN A MAN AND HIS JOB MAY HAVE ON SELECTED ASPECTS OF HIS HEALTH, (2) STUDY OF RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN OVERLOAD AND UNDER-UTILIZATION, HEALTH AND HEALTH BEHAVIOR, AND SERUM URIC ACID IN 120 MEN FROM LOWER MANAGERIAL POSITIONS, (3) STUDY OF RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN TRAINEE FACTORS AND SUCCESSFUL UTILIZATION OF TRAINING ON THE JOB TO ASSIST IN EVALUATION OF TRAINING PROGRAMS, AND (4) STUDY OF THE LEVEL OF CHANGE IN A TRAINING GROUP AND ITS LATER APPLICATION IN THE ORGANIZATION.
