On Micromanagement

When someone micromanages another person, they are not actually managing the person, they are managing the task. Micromanaging is when you manage tasks instead of people.

The key to good management is to lead the human being in front of you, and to let them manage their own tasks. Prioritize their well being, and you will empower them to execute their tasks better, and with even less management as time goes on. The less you have to manage them, the more you can focus on their performance, and increasing their agency, and their impact.

Micromanaging is for suckers. Lead instead.
