Ep #129: How Your Fear of Micromanaging is Stopping You from Leading like an Executive

You are not micromanaging your team enough. 

Now before you say, “But Stacy you told me to get out of the weeds?!

Yes, that is true.

BUT part of the reason you are in the weeds is because you are not micromanaging your team enough. 

Now hear me out.  I know you cringe at the idea of being called a micromanager.

But…it’s precisely because you’re so afraid of being seen as a micromanager that you aren’t acting like an executive leader.

So I encourage you to start micromanaging a little more BUT in the RIGHT way.

That’s why in this episode of Maximize Your Career with Stacy Mayer, I’m going to show you how you can become an amazing leader of your team by not micromanaging details, but micromanaging expectations instead.

Listen on.
