3 Easy Ways to Stop Micromanaging

“People don’t need babysitting, they need leadership to set clear expectations, give them what they need to be successful, and then stay out of their way.”

Trust your people, don’t make them earn it.

Micromanaging is the lowest form of leadership.

“Start from the premise that the people that you’ve hired are perfectly capable, responsible, accountable adults.”

1. Ask people what they need, and give it to them.

2. Find other ways to measure performance and productivity.

3. Don’t punish your best employees for the poor behavior of your worst ones.
