It's pure myth that human beings are fundamentally rational creatures-we are sublimely emotional at heart and work best when treated as such, argues consultant Herr, who contends that companies need to take a hard-science approach to the soft side of the business if they want to maximize their gains. He explores the human social appetites-innovation, skill mastery and deployment, goal attainment, cooperation and self-protection-maintaining that these drives are as integral to our biology as our need for food, sex and love. People want to excel at work, and companies that encourage that desire bring out the best in their employees.
