Micromanaging is often seen as a sin of management. No employee wants it and no leader wants to be accused of it.

So how do you get the balance right and offer your team members the support that they need without looking over their shoulders or giving too much freedom?

In this week’s podcast, I share:

  • Why we micromanage and how to gently release some of that control
  • The difference between micromanaging and managing closely
  • How to judge the level of support your team members need
  • Ways to strategically manage those that do need more of your support

I hope you find these tips helpful and give the Spectrum of Support a try with your team.
