[FLR] The Micromanager Makeover

May 12, 2016 | The “Micromanage” Edition


Happy Friday!


To micromanage or not to micromanage that is the question. There are different perspectives on this topic. An alternative view 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 & times when to back away. The key is having the right sense about this.
