Value–Truth–Control Relations

Show Summary Details


This chapter puts all the effectiveness elements—value, truth, and control—together within an organization of motivations. It describes how these different ways of being effective support one another, how an impact on one element can spread to influence each of the other elements, how they can receive differential emphasis or significance, and how working together as a whole, they are more important and more meaningful than when they work as independent elements.

Keywords: motivation; value; truth; control
