Join Dorie Clark for an in-depth discussion in this video How to work better under micromanagers, part of Personal Effectiveness Tips.
- Let's be clear, working for a micromanager…can be incredibly challenging.…You feel scrutinized all the time,…like you're not really trusted to do a good job on your own.…It starts out as annoying…and can often end up as demoralizing.…It'd be great if they'd just change.…But, even if they're aware of what they're doing,…they may have trouble adapting to a new way…of comporting themselves.…What you can change is you,…and how you respond to those adverse circumstances.…
Here's how to relieve…some of the pressure of a micromanaging boss.…First, it's important to try to understand their concerns.…It's possible that this just their way…and they micromanage everyone.…But it's worth asking, do they in fact,…treat everyone the same?…Or, are they scrutinizing you more closely?…If so, was there something you did in the past…that's causing them to act this way.…If you were late with a report…or for a while you weren't getting into work on time,…or if you didn't double-check…something that you should have.…
That might actually have given them the legitimate concern,…
