micromanagementI spend most of my time working with leaders. And those leaders all have leaders (after all, even CEO’s have Boards of Directors). Spend any amount of time with groups of leaders and they will talk about how they dislike being micromanaged. No one likes to be micromanaged, yet we have all experienced it. In my experience, people want to talk about the micromanagement inflicted on them far more often than asking if they are inflicting it on others.

The paradox of micromanagement is that no one likes it, yet it continues to occur. It might be the most recognized issue with poor leadership, yet it persists in organizations and teams around the world.

But why?

There are reasons why it happens, even if it is untended, and there are myths about it helping perpetuate it. And while people don’t like it, they tend to underestimate the problems it can cause.

Consistent micromanagement stifles the development of team members, reduces commitment and engagement, reduces trust levels, and can increase turnover. If you as a leader or if your organization are experiencing any of these, you might be well-served to look at the levels of micromanagement in your organization.
