Are you a micro-manager? If so, there is one of two reasons why. Listen to this and see which one fits you best. In one case, you can own it; in the other, you might need to do a little work on “you.”
What you’ll learn from this episode:
- Some employees don’t perform well and “earn” more attention from their managers. If you’re micro-managing on purpose, let the employee know it’s true and why.
- Then there are people who micro-manage everyone. The Thought Model says that their behavior comes from a feeling of fear, insecurity, betrayal, resentment, etc. Their thoughts trigger emotions which then trigger their behaviors.
