Micromanagement is one of the most widely condemned managerial sins, and one of the most common employee complaints. It contributes to low morale, high turnover, inefficiency, instability, and lack of continuity in an organization. Being perceived as a micromanager can also have significant negative ramifications on your career.

But Harry Chambers proves that micromanagement can be identified and resisted-both by those who (often unknowingly) inflict it and by those who are its victims.

Chambers details the defining traits of micromanagers, and provides a Micromanagement Potential Indicator (MPI) test to help you evaluate whether (and to what extent) you might be a micromanager. He provides real-world examples of micromanagement in action, analysis of the damage it does, and advice on what to do about it-whether you're the victim or the perpetrator. He offers detailed, field-tested strategies that will eliminate the damage that over-controlling behavior causes and increase creativity, risk-taking, productivity, and initiative in any organization.
