Dr Katherine Benziger.Best Practices in HR Management Breakthrough #1: Recognition that Human’s Who are Thriving Experience Flow Carl Jung Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi Karl Pribram Other neuro-sicentists exploring human potential discovered Optimal Thinking was characterized by Enthusiasm & Effortlessness Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi the 1st scientist to report the ground-breaking discovery Optimal Thinking exists Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience: Steps Towards Enhancing The Quality of Life. He proved Flow existed. Mihaly Csikszenmihalyi’s focus was on the mastery & anxiety 2.. D. 1. USA Benziger Breakthrough . Ph.

Dr Katherine Benziger. 1. He found that mastery is not nearly as important.
