The humanist factor in strategic leadership, Management Y

Nowadays, companies are looking for different management models, where they can adapt their employees, in optimized standards, and above all, that make them grow in the business landscape and generate a lot of profit. But for that to happen, it is necessary to target the human part of the business, and with that, prioritize the personal qualities of employees who reach working life, and their motivations for the organization.

One of the principal creators of behavioral theory of management, Douglas McGregor in his 1960 work, The Human Side of Organizations, said that the style of management could be divided in two ways, one through a traditional, mechanistic and pragmatic style. which was named Theory X, the other, a style based on modern conceptions of human behavior, given the name of Theory Y. By analyzing styles, the humanist factor can be a great tool for carrying out activities and the financial and economic growth of the company. A contemporary and modern management, which aims at motivating employees, achieves gigantic results of satisfaction and the ability to conduct their tasks with more spontaneity and responsibility, precisely because the jobs performed are more enjoyable, increasing self-esteem in the professional field.

Management following Theory Y directs its team by showing all of its components that the tasks performed are satisfactory to both the business results and the professional goals of the employees. Thus, the happy employee in his work environment, contributes to the company being successful in its business, which will reflect in great profits.
