in Leaders & Managers,Management Training

Flush out any micromanagement tendencies you may have by answering these questions:
  1. Do you often remember “one last thing” to be done before a project is sent out the door?

    Yes | No

  2. Do you demand rewrites of meeting minutes and other documents that are really good enough to serve their purposes in-house?

    Yes | No

  3. Do you often make suggestions that require people to backtrack and redo what they have already done?

    Yes | No

  4. Do you prefer to review every document, report and communication your team produces, even though it’s really unnecessary?

    Yes | No

  5. Do you sometimes repeat instructions without clarifying whether someone has understood?

    Yes | No

  6. Do you still perform some duties that are no longer appropriate at your level?

    Yes | No

  7. Do you often hinder other people’s abilities to move ahead on or finish assignments because they’re waiting for answers from you?

    Yes | No

Don’t blame yourself if you came up with four or more “Yes” answers. The road to micromanaging springs from the desire to be conscientious and produce good work. It’s a wellmeaning mistake, but it’s still something an effective leader needs to recognize and change.
