Dealing with micro-managers

 

  1. Pick an issue you could support the boss either way on.
  2. Pick a time when the boss isn’t under too much stress from time or performance pressure.
  3. Agree to support the boss with either decision they make and assure them that you will support either way.
  4. Ask if they would like to hear what you (or “the team”) thinks about the issue before they decide
