Helemaal overgelezen vorige week… maar zoals meestal heeft Rands overschot van gelijk:
A micromanager does not trust. That is correct, but, more importantly, they do not know. They do not have an impression… a profile of the person they are managing, so they ignore the person and focus on the tasks. This creates a terrific negative feedback loop where an employee becomes demoralized because they believe the manager doesn’t trust them, so they stop thinking and start waiting for the dim-witted, micromanaged cues from this emotionally inept manager who is waiting for… what? Hard work? Inspiration? What exactly did they do to create an environment of inspiration? The only inspired work that’s going on is the employee’s desperate search for a job where they’re going to be treated like a human being.
De bittere grimlach van herkenning.
