Is Micromanagement Losing You Top Talent?

Whenever we take on a new employee, we all aim to keep them for the long run and provide them with a bright future. We want to give employees the freedom to control how they work and the autonomy they deserve, especially for employees with many years of experience.

However, what happens if this autonomy starts to fade? Or worse yet, was promised but never delivered. How does your workforce transform if management begins to override creativity, and control overrides independent decision making and the organic learning that comes with it?

Micromanagement can have a highly detrimental effect on employees, and is most often the result of an employee becoming a manager purely to fill that role without any formal training or experience in managing people. Alternatively, it can be the result of a deep-rooted culture within a business, in which employees can end up immersed after many years of the same routine, regardless of the leadership values they joined the company with.
