It’s hard watching someone make mistakes, especially if you already know how to avoid them.
Staying silent while they slip up (or even do things in ways you would not) is harder.
That doesn’t mean you have an excuse to micromanage them.
Micromanagement is the ultimate controlling management style. It’s demoralizing and counter-intuitive, as the desire for control to make sure everything goes to plan only creates more problems in the long-term.
That’s why we here at Process Street will be going through:
- What micromanagement is
- The pros and cons of it
- How to spot a micromanager
- How to replace micromanagement with OKR
- Using processes to remove the need for micromanagement
Let’s get started.
