Signs that you are a micro-manager

This client’s issue was that she continually put in over 10 hours a day in a draining work environment. Although she had desires to do other hobbies and side businesses, she was too exhausted to do anything about those other dreams. She self-diagnosed herself as having no follow-through, although at the office – she had lots of follow-through.

After hearing her story, I suggested that she was actually micromanaging her people too much. This was taking her time away from the items she really wanted to accomplish as well as zapping all her energy. Her knee-jerk reaction was that she was not a micro-manager.

Narrowing your career choices to your advantage

Recently I was approached by a professional struggling with what her next career position should be. Her background was in project management, but she could go back to school and get her MBA. She should start something on her own, or she could stay exactly where she is and focus on her PMP certification. She could take her transferable skills and move into operational management for the executive level. She could do this or that or the other. She was continually flip-flopping among all these options that she was stalled.
