Ep. 8: The Trouble with Micromanagement

The Trouble with Micromanagement

Or listen on:

About the Episode

Micromanagement does no favors to employer branding. However, faculty and staff may be willing to be the brand ambassadors of their campuses if their leaders knew how to…dance? There is a practice called followership which is the set of employee behaviors that influence how leaders lead. So, what happens when leaders micromanage? 

Sharna Fabiano, a certified leadership coach, uses her experience as an internationally recognized tango artist to help leaders understand how to work productively with their people. As the chair of the International Leadership Association’s Followership Member Community, Sharna helps us understand what followership is, why micromanagement is received so negatively by employees, and how leaders can invite their employees to “the dance floor” to foster more collaborative and productive work environments.
