[FLR] Managing Up: When Your Boss Is An Obsessive Micromanager | Friday Leadership Report

Happy Friday,

Manage your boss, or your boss will manage you. You choose. It seems like a paradox, but most leaders appreciate feedback and guidance from their team. Remember, they don’t appreciate being micro-managed any more than you do. Lead, don’t manage your boss.
