Today I found some nice resources on the Internet which might be useful for you with regards to micromanagement. Reading this article is more like freshening my mind how we should manage people in our subordination and also get the feelings when you are in their position. And, in other side, in order to avoid your manager treats you like that again and again, perhaps this article could guide you to that direction.
However nobody likes to be micromanaged though, but sometimes micromanagement is needed in positive and limited way. This article helps us to resonate that. Of course, there are plenty of articles, essays or even books talk about this. They all have the same reason why we should avoid micromanaging and suggest to rely relationship on trust and delegation.
“Trust is at the core of all meaningful relationships. Without trust there can be no giving, no bonding, no risk-taking.”
Terry Mizrahi, Director of Ecco (Education Center for Community Organizations)
So, what do you think of micromanagement based on your own experience?
Managing is like communicating and connecting with other people. How you manage will show who you are in real. Sometimes doing or following basic things will improve or boost your management skills. And, I, personally, and perhaps you too, will agree and admit that fact. To get to know more what all those basic things or rules are, InsideCRM has a great article talking about this. Please read this article thoroughly, “The Manager’s Cheat Sheet: 101 Common-Sense Rules for Leaders“. No matter on what business you are into, these rules just apply anywhere. Happy reading!
