[FLR] The Micromanager Makeover

Happy Friday!

 

To micromanage or not to micromanage, that is the question. There are different perspectives on this topic. Someone with an alternate perspective might ask the question, “when does a leader need to be more actively involved in the details of a project”? I think there are times to be more actively involved and times when to back away. The key is having the right sense about this.

 

“Empowering employees does not mean that managers can’t track the status of the project. After all, senior managers and stakeholders are going to hold the manager responsible for meeting the objectives, not the employees.” – Dan Travieso
