Theory X and Theory Y in Practice

Theories are derivative of real life observations. These theories are no exception. Soft management styles are most appropriate to knowledge workers while hard management may be suitable to workers that exert physical energies in their work. Nonetheless, leadership and concern for staff welfare will have a significant effect on productivity.

As a Leader or CEO, we have to facilitate this objective and treat them as thé most precious resource so they can volunteer their highest efforts and energies and reach creative excitement towards their goals.
