No one likes to work under a micromanager. It can be very difficult and stressful. As an owner or a manager, it is very important to the life of your company that your employees don’t see you that way. It can lead to problems running your business and keeping employees. How can you tell if you are micromanaging? Here are 11 signs.

  1. You are overloaded with work because you refuse to or can’t delegate tasks.
  2. You assign work to someone, then find out it’s not being done the way you think or want it to be done, so you take it away from them and do it yourself.
  3. When you assign a project, you leave little to no room for other people to make suggestions or take the initiative.
  4. You have a project manager, but you always take over their role.
  5. You rarely or never complete a project on time because you are so obsessed with the details.
