Hi Simhan,
Thanks for that link. I had not heard about the XY Theory before.
Have worked for so many Theory X managers during my working life!! Now I know why I had such a bad time with them! If only we could banish them off the face of the earth.

Thank you John for accessing the link suggested; I am rather surprised to note that you had not come across that before.
I take this opportunity to appeal to other members to explore the links at the left sidebar of that site. The links contain a lot of useful information about other motivational theories as well as on Personality, Leadership, Training, Learning and Teaching, etc.
Have a lovely weekend.
