Maslow Needs are Outdated
Draht
Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs is outdated. Plus it has never been empirically validated.
I find Marshall Rosenberg's approach (see introduction into non-violent communication by him) to human needs and addressing them much more effective.
For addressing needs in sales I typically refer to Interpersonal CircumPlex (ICP) models such as DISC which provide the users with a wide array of tools for recognizing and addressing needs / motives / buying-signals, and so on.
Editor: see also the separate discussion: Is Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs Still Valid Today?
