“You have employees for a reason. They should be good at doing it, and if you’re still doing it, that’s a problem. It means that you don’t trust your employees, and it means there’s a functional issue in your relationship with them. It means they’re not living up to their potential, and they could be prone to exit because you’re not giving them the ability to get the job done.” - Ed Evarts
Micromanagement is common in organizations big and small, which is why it’s so important to look at the causes behind it and the things that can be done to reduce its effect on everyone involved. Leadership styles can be positively modified if the individual is motivated to do it, and today’s Finding Brave guest reveals how the development of specific leadership skills such as delegation will help create a culture of psychological bravery, which is absolutely critical.
