Today’s workforce is a very diverse one; there are many people from different races, creeds, religious beliefs, and genders working together. Because of this many of us bring our beliefs to work and they affect on how we operate. In Contemporary management , Douglas McGregor proposed two sets of assumptions about how work behavior and attitudes affect now only how management view them but how they behave in the organization. These two set of assumptions are known as Theory X and Theory Y (Jones & George, 2008). In Contemporary management , McGregor’s Theory X give the assumption that workers as inherently lazy, dislikes work, and will try to do as little as possible to get by (Jones & George, 2008). Theory Y is the opposite, it assumes that workers are not lazy, they like to work, and if given the opportunity, will do good for the organization (Jones & George, 2008). Under these two theories Managers would develop a way of interacting with their workers.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
