Great conversation and examples of dealing with micromanaging. In my last blog on powerful conversations and the consequences of avoiding them, I spoke about the need for courage. If you are being micromanaged, do you avoid having a conversation with your boss about how you can both work towards the same end and still provide room for creativity and innovation? Sometimes a boss feels that he/she is being held accountable for the end result and hasn’t clearly started what they expect. A failure to effectively delegate is often at the root of micromanagement. How can you ask better clarifying questions to ensure good delegation?
