What follows are some signs that you might be a micromanager – or have one on your hands. In general, micromanagers:
- Resist delegating;
- Immerse themselves in overseeing the projects of others;
- Start by correcting tiny details instead of looking at the big picture;
- Take back delegated work before it is finished if they find a mistake in it; and
- Discourage others from making decisions without consulting them.
