I thought I was a great manager until I had to “manage” a 40th surprise birthday celebration for my best friend. That’s when I learned that “being a boss” and delegating tasks is just micromanagement in disguise. I learned that the inclusion of ideas—and empowerment of the people around me—really did produce better outcomes. So I set out to create a framework that I could use to combat micromanagement—a framework I call Purposeful Ignorance. Join me, and I’ll share actionable steps you can take to combat the micromanager in you.
