Maslow's Theory of Eupsychian Management

At the top of the list of my recent discoveries about management is Abraham Maslow's theory of Eupsychian Management, and how it correlates with Douglas McGregor's "human side of enterprise." One might say that these two theorists had "soft skills" as their focus, but actually, these two theorists went far deeper, inasmuch as Eupsychian theory and McGregor's Theories X and Y, profoundly inform management mentality and outlook, and at least for me, these guide all management functions.
In Maslow's text, Eupsychian Management - A Journal (1965), and specifically in Chapter 3, Maslow offers 36 principles under the title, Notes on Eupsychian Economics and Management, which engage his well-known Hierarchy of Needs into organizational dynamics. These 36 principles are total gems. Yes, I fully understand he published these ideas 58 years ago, but there is, quite simply, a body of knowledge that remains timeless.
