Avoiding Micromanagement – Helping Team Members Excel – On Their Own

What follows are some signs that you might be a micromanager – or have one on your hands. In general, micromanagers:

  • Resist delegating;
  • Immerse themselves in overseeing the projects of others;
  • Start by correcting tiny details instead of looking at the big picture;
  • Take back delegated work before it is finished if they find a mistake in it; and
  • Discourage others from making decisions without consulting them.
