099: How to understand the status of work without being overbearing
Have you ever looked at all the projects your team is working on and realized that you have absolutely no clue how any of them are going...but you're afraid to reach out and ask for an update?
You're not alone. Many managers struggle with the fear of becoming a micromanager, or being perceived as one, because they've had a micromanager themselves. I know I've been micromanaged before...and I know how demoralizing it can be.
However, we can't let this fear keep us in the dark on the status of our team's projects.
Luckily, there are three simple changes you can make to ensure you get regular updates on project status...WITHOUT being overbearing. Let's go over them together!
