    Oh I wasn't offended. I'm about as far from preferring micromanagement as they come. I quit a very well regarded position because my boss was a serious micromanager. People thought I was a bit crazy for that, but I just. Couldn't. Do. It. I doubt anyone else would be offended either.

    I was just saying it's kind of like asking a group of men, "Do you prefer being pussywhipped or an independent decision maker in your relationship ?"

    See how like... yes, there are guys who DO like being "pussywhipped"... but it's got kind of a negative connotation to admit to it? It's not wrong to ask it, it just would go against human psychology to admit to something like that a lot of times unless the person is very reflective lol.

    I wasn't saying your intentions were bad, just that there is an implication behind how you worded it that people wouldn't naturally admit to even if it were the case.

    The one that knows when it is time for delegating or micro and with whom to deploy which strategy. Operations happen in time and space and can't be efficiently done with one dimensional approach in most cases.

    There is a difference between micromanagement and being a jerk.

    I do not like to be micromanaged and I rarely use that management style. however i have seen senarios where its necessary but its usually when a person is in a position thats not suited for them and their superior has a project that the outcome relects heavily on them and they dont believe in the persons ability to complete the job and so they micromanage. However if you have the ability to build your own team and move staff around, there should be no need for this style.

    I will never stop seeing Micromanaging as negative. It’s a form of control, gaslighting and in some rare cases, psychological abuse. Unless someone is truly and severely mentally deficiant, there is no excuse to ever treat an individual in such a way.

    I can't handle micro management and will go out of my way to get any supervisor fired whose control issues mandate they try it with me. I probably wouldn't mind if any of them ever had a greater degree of competence, knowledge, and intuitive approach to the task at hand, but that is very seldom the case. Just give me a list, sit back, and watch the runaway locomotive of my work ethic plow through it. No need to waste company time reminding me of why you're the one that handles people for a living. Leave the physics type stuff to me.

    If you are as talented as you think and not having delusions of grandeur, a smart manager will leave you alone to do your thing.

    It's a fact that many workers are F-ups, especially in government bureaucracies. A couple weeks ago, I hear a story of social workers leaving an abused child with the abuser despite multiple reports from neighbors over several years; the child was eventually murdered. We hear stories of Securities and Exchange Commision workers surfing the net for porn prior to and while the 2008 financial crises was occurring. One Postal worker was hiding bags and bags of mail in his backyard because he didn't want to deliver them. There are situations (pretty much all union and government jobs) where micro-managing is absolutely required.

    Every supervisor/manager should do periodic audits of work performance (especially of new hires) and then determine how long of a leash each worker gets.

    If many workers are fuckups, the biggest fuckup of all is the person who hired them.
