I am a 'Theory Y' worker. I thoroughly enjoy my profession and strive to do and be the best i can be, able to be given freedom to do what is needed without close monitoring.



I am a 'Theory Y' project manager. I believe that my is dedicated towards the work and do not micro manage.



Theory Y Project Manager



Theory Y. If I choose people who like the work they do then I'll only need to support them, and I won't need to micromanage them.



I am a Theory Y manager. Trust and cooperation is built better this way.



I always use theory Y approach on the first time, if it is done well so i continue to be theory Y manager. But if there is issue that i must observe closely and control every step (micromanagement) i think i use theory X (but this case is rarely).



when asked i believe more than 90% will say they are theory Y, but you need to observe what person does on day to day basis. Most of us has wrong perception of our-self. :-) :-)

Agree with you Saket..



Agree with Saket. Most of us see ourselves as Y, what it would be more interesting is to ask others how they perceive us. By the way, I also consider myself an Y manager :)



I think being X or Y depends on the type of work. I work in the IT field where task types vary frequently and provide good motivation. There is little place for dull, repetitive work. Up until now, I have always been a theory Y manager, which is quite in accordance with my field of work.
