I really like the sound of Theory Y. I think it’s the best way to deal with people, for it is positive and constructive. People come to work to do good things. Management’s role is to help them.
My experience has been as a project manager with no actually authority. I had to cajole people to get them to do things. But people like to do cool things. They want to work on projects that make a difference. That’s the key – show progress, be organized, respect the group’s time and create something great.
