Stay positive and keep your career on track
Is your manager sabotaging your career?
What can you do about it?
1. Be your own control freak
2. Focus on outcome
3. Be proactive
4. Goals and roles
5. Get specific
Micromanagers rarely recognize that they are micromanaging. Bring up one specific concern and one specific action you’re requesting. Try: “On this new project, I’ll be able to do my best work if we agree on the parameters, and then I work to meet them. I’d like to give this my best shot, and I will ask for help if I need it.”
