    As has been the case- except with a small handful of incompetent freaks with control issues. Suffice to say, getting rid of them was easy. They did most of the work towards that end.

    I've always thought that micromanagement is just a form of managerial incompetence. Speaking from personal experience as someone who has micromanaged and has been micromanaged. It's an inefficient approach to work. Micromanaging and guiding/teaching are two different things.

However if you have the ability to build your own team and move staff around, there should be no need for this style.
    I agree. Micromanaging can be necessary with certain employees; especially if they haven't built up any credibility or trustworthiness that they are actually able to deliver or doing the job at all.

    I have always pretty proactively gotten things done or done things of my own accord that I knew needed doing, before needing to be told to do it. But, though someone checking in on me or highly micromanaging me might be highly irritating, I don't think it would impact me hugely otherwise since my own style tends to be on top of things anyway, so ... the micromanager wouldn't have much to pester me about iow and would probably eventually mostly leave me alone.

    I prefer clarity over no direction whatsoever, so...wherever that lands me.

    Delegators. The worst homeowners I work for are the ones who have to pick everything apart and second guess everything I have to do. I can still work with these people, but firm boundaries have to be set up in order for the both of us to function capably.

    11/10 times, I'm the one irritated with the incompetence of others, including those above me. They should put me in charge for just one day...

    There are SUPERVISORS who have been here ages who DON'T KNOW HOW TO TRANSFER A PHONE CALL.

    I can't even with this place.

    This rings true for me. As much of a strongly introverted individual I can be at times, the more I've learned about myself, the more I've realized I'm ultimately a people person. In order to keep me engaged, I need to be able to bounce ideas off people and feed off the energy of the room.

    Once upon a time I thought I'd be happy working remotely with minimal contact with others, and while I'd probably initially enjoy it, I know deep down that in order for me to keep focused that I require the presence of other, more diligent people to be around me.

    Neither. I dislike antish way of thinking/working except times that I can have a lot of respect for the supervisor in question. Office work is not for me, I am much more efficient working alone, doing my own thing.

    In the early stages of a project or job I might appear to have extremely comprehension of abstraction, and this stage is a wall of fear because I know how this comes across to some people, but after this stage, the mechanical questions stop and I do imagine and create new things independently, bouncing off this solid framework. If the leader and I are especially different and a tension emerges for that reason, I am willing to talk through it - in fact, I will probably initiate.

    In my last job, I have received feedback both that I am someone who can do "worker bee" style abnormally fast (once I have the workflow nailed down) and am a competent investigator who will find and fix little lynchpins in a more abstract project that the requester didn't even know they needed. In all of my jobs, I have always found my place although it's not always the first process I am placed in.

    If this sounds defensive, it is because as a child, I was mistaken for someone who demands micromanagement.
