15 Ways To Get Your Boss To Stop Micromanaging You


Jan 10, 2018

When you work for a micromanager, you may feel like your boss doesn't trust you to do your job. It can be difficult to perform well and bring new ideas to the table when someone is constantly checking up on you and scrutinizing your work processes. Although it's common for newer managers to struggle with delegation, it's ultimately a bad habit that will lead to a negative work environment with an unhappy team and an unhappy boss. If you approach the situation professionally and tactfully, you can bring this issue up to your manager and help them see that you're capable of doing the job you were hired to do.

A lot of time micromanaging is born out of lack of clear communication. Implement a tool or use technology to show your leader what projects you are working on, and how you are tracking progress. Once they know they can check up on you at any time via this tool, the need to micromanage disappears.
