The Dangers of Micromanaging

Micromanaging is something even otherwise competent managers can be guilty of. Wanting to get the job done, and get it Dangers of micro-managingdone right, are often the motivators behind a micromanager but this method almost always backfires.

Micromanagement is defined as “attention to small details in management: control [of] a person or a situation by paying extreme attention to small details” (Encarta definition) but in reality it is much more than just diligent attention to detail. Why is micromanagement so detrimental to success? For one thing, it interferes with employee’s ability to do their job properly and leads to unnecessary stress and higher employee turnover. It stifles any creativity or “thinking outside the box,” leaving organizations stagnant. Under micromanagement employees become timid and unable, or unwilling, to perform at their best.

This form of mismanagement strikes both inexperienced as well as seasoned managers convinced that their overbearing style is working. The importance of managers being properly trained to manage cannot be overstated. Your company, employees and profits depend on it.
