  • Hi Elaine, welcome back and this is a really interesting piece. I was particularly interesting in your last point, that social media is encouraging managers to conduct business around Theory Y rather than old school Theory X. This resonates strongly with me, can I suggest it deserves a follow up post?

  • A need higher in the hierarchy will become a motive of behaviour as long as the needs below it have been satisfied. Unsatisfied lower needs will dominate unsatisfied higher needs and must be satisfied before the person can climb up the hierarchy.

  • Thanks Niall, I am refreshed and ready for that follow up post. I would love some feedback in the comments here to give me some guidance as to the content of the follow up.

    Perhaps something around our attitude towards conducting ourselves both online and offline as employers/managers? As a consequence of traceability and transparency (with the constant “threat” of exposure if we do not conduct ourselves properly).

    And how our recent behavioural changes have or have not been influenced by the more recent theorists/experts in the areas of SM and SN?

  • My recommendation is that you read works by the pioneer of goal setting theory, Edwin A. Locke, e.g., Postmodernism and Management: Pros, Cons and the Alternative and Handbook of Principles of Organizational Behavior.

  • RE: Herzberg’s dissatisfiers, I’m not sure that job security, at least in this day and age, is ever a need  that will be satisfied for an individual, before he/she is required to meet job challenges imposed by supervisors. When the economy takes a downturn, fear reigns, and “Theory X” managers flourish. They are what’s killing the workforce.

  • Thanks for the recommendations 🙂 always a good topic to read about

  • I agree that there is nothing like a recession to bring out the ugly X in management style, all based on fear as you say.

    Fortunately, many of the workers who find themselves out of work, or suffering under the hands of an X manager, become entrepreneurs, and succeed. By process of elimination, entrepreneurs find themselves on the correct journey, rather than staying in a job out of fear, or because times are too good to leave.

    The beauty about recessions (esp here in Ireland) is that they create a new breed of entrepreneurs and creativity, networking becomes enjoyable again (relationship building) and theory Y in business flourishes.

    Of course, this is not always the case, and I am happy to report, this is what I am currently experiencing in Ireland 🙂

    Great points Heather, and thanks for sharing your insights

  • Peaceway

    it depends on the workers attitude to work. if they behave matured, you can apply Theory Y, but if otherwise, i think theory X would be better.

  • Hi James & welcome to Tweak Your Biz. My two brothers are both teachers so I will be passing on this post as I’m sure they will find it useful.

  • Emad Rahim

    What is the #1 app that every teacher should have for teaching their students? Both high school and college level.

    Hi James- Wanted to make sure that you’re aware of our new service, Balefire Labs, for helping teachers sand parents find the best instructional apps for their kids. I started the business about 6 months ago because I was so frustrated with the process of finding high-quality and truly educational apps. Hope you’ll check us out and thanks! http://www.BalefireLabs.com

    Cuz Theory ‘Y’ is always better 😀 😀 m/

  • Robert Johanesen

    Theory X leadership unfortunately is more prevalent today than it was in the early 1900’s. Outsourcing, very low wages, hiring only part time workers to avoid paying benefits and the breakup of the unions (Ronald Regan) are all part and parcel to “Theory X” managers flourishing. We have PHD”s being supervised by GED’s. As a society we need to only buy American made products and support our unions. It’s a beginning to getting jobs back here and putting the “Theory X” boot in the ass leadership back into the history books
