Webinar 26: How Leaders Can Get More Done Through Others: How Micromanagement Can Kill Productivity and Creativity
If you want to destroy worker initiative, blast a hole in productivity, and scribble the bottom line with red ink, there’s no better way to do it than by micromanaging your employees.
Not only does it waste your time, keeping your employees on a tight leash and constantly interrupting them ruins their ability to find thoughtful, profitable ways to do their jobs.
If you’re so distrustful of your employees that feel you have to keep an eye on them at all times, why did you hire them in the first place?
The true leader quickly learns that the only way to get things done right is not to try to do everything yourself: true organization-wide productivity requires an engaged, informed workforce willing and eager to work toward the organization’s mission and vision.
