In my experience and academic research, a community that values each other and drives towards a common goal manages a higher growth rate over a sustainable period. We all put in our best effort while protecting our culture of cultivating the very best in our people.

The need for achievement is a component of well-being and is defined by the need to drive towards completing goals through an individual's desire to take ownership. From my perspective, being motivated to perform is also aligned to the community, and the need to feel a part of something greater than oneself in creating impact.
