Telling your team what to do can cost you and your company.
Obsessive micromanagers usually make terrible team leaders and leading like a dictator can drive up turnover, thwart innovation, and stunt the growth of your team.
The bottom-line is that micromanagement is bad for business.
I host CTO, Phillip Turpin, at TechnologyAdvice. He shares a common mistake that leaders often make plus a leadership strategy that can accelerate your impact and your team’s progress.
The way he explains this mistake you’ll probably have the same reaction I did… ‘Um, I’ve done that.”
He’s also worked for Executive Director at Ramsey Solutions, a Dave Ramsey Company, and explains the positive lessons he learned during his time there.
