Do you Lead or Micromanage?
January 21, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 4:45 pm
More than ever businesses need good leaders, but instead we seem to have businesses filled with Micromanagers. The reality is that no one likes to be micromanaged. It’s frustrating, demoralising and demotivating. Yet, some managers can’t seem to help themselves. To make things worse most micromanagers do not even know that they are doing it. This course will outline what you need to do to stop micromanaging to start leading instead and how you can handle a micromanaging boss or superior.
We seem to have an abundance of Micromanagers and a scarcity of proper Leaders. Many times person go up the hierarchical scale as they show a proficiency in a certain technical skill but few realise that the higher the hierarchical scale you go, you will require less of the technical skills you are so good at and more of the leadership skills many are so weak in. Hence we end up with managers and leaders doing what they know best i.e. micromanaging.
OBJECTIVES OF THE SESSION
The objective is to understand what micromanaging is all about and as to whether you are more of a leader or a micromanager. Then we will go through various techniques as to how you can stop micromanaging for your own benefit and most of all for the benefit of your team.
