There's a piece of management theory that goes back some decades now that is ascribed to someone by the name of McGregor. You may have heard of it, but it has rather fallen out of fashion. Like a lot of the old management theories there's a lot of merit in them, but as we discover more and more about what makes people tick, then some of the older models have fallen by the wayside.
McGregor put forward the idea that there are two types of manager, and he called them the X type and the Y type. He said that these two types of manager had completely different attitudes to their role as leaders of other people.
