If any leader has allowed a toxic culture to develop in their organization where managers micromanage their team, then they have no business sitting in that leadership position.
According to Nick Hardy, micromanagement is one of the worst, most damaging and morale-sapping ways of managing people that can seriously affect productivity, employee retention and the overall vibe of the space.
Leadership is about inspiring, motivating, challenging people to be at their best, providing guidance, support, mentoring, and so much more. When you have a great group of people passionate, inspired and motivated to make a difference, give them the freedom to work and create an environment that allows them to become the very best version of themselves.
When leaders recognize that they don't have to be the smartest person in the room, these are the companies that consistently pull off innovative or heroic feats in business because so many of the people who work there are given the freedom to make it happen.
