How to Manage without Micromanaging

You’re responsible for the results of your team and you want to get the best quality and productivity from them. You know that requires oversight, but when does it become micromanaging?

What is the “just right” amount and when does it cross the line?

In this seminar, you’ll learn how to navigate this tricky—and critical—aspect of managing others.

Micromanaging is one of THE most important mistakes managers make and it costs employers dearly.

In fact, research by Blessing/White has shown that having autonomy—i.e. freedom from micromanaging—is THE #1 driver of discretionary effort—i.e. employees working harder than required to keep their jobs.

 

In this seminar, you’ll learn how to:

  1. Identify how much oversight an employee needs.
     
  2. Provide clear, actionable expectations and feedback, so employees are set up to succeed.
     
  3. Discuss what you need from an employee for you to provide greater autonomy.

How to Manage without Micromanaging

  • David Lee

    David Lee, the founder of HumanNature@Work, works with employers who want to improve employee engagement, productivity, and customer service. He has worked with organizations and presented at conferences both domestically and abroad.

    An internationally recognized thought leader in the field of employee engagement and performance, he is the author of over 150 articles and book chapters that have been published in trade journals and books in the US, Europe, India, Australia, and China

    He is also the author of Dealing with a Difficult Co-Worker and Powerful Storytelling Techniques for Trainers (published by ASTD Press).

    In addition to his research and work with both struggling and “best in class” organizations, David Lee’s work draws from a wide range of scientific disciplines including cognitive neuroscience, anthropology, psychoneuroimmunology, trauma and resilience research, and paleopsychology.

    Taking this research which typically doesn’t find its way into the business world, David translates these principles of human nature into practical leadership and managerial strategies that optimize employee performance.

    To capture the impact understanding human nature makes, David borrows from the popular TV show The Dog Whisperer, and explains “Understanding human nature helps you become a People Whisperer, and by doing so, dramatically improves your ability to get the best results from others (and yourself).”

    Recently, his work on what makes organizations resilient and employees perform at their best has focused on the central role productive relationships and productive conversations have on these outcomes, with this being the take away message:

    “Every better business result you desire requires having a better conversation.”
