Let's seriously consider this question: is there a situation where micromanaging is essential? If no one likes to be micromanaged, wouldn't our managers also not want to be micro-managers?
Credible leaders establish psychological contracts with their communities and teams, bound by shared values. These contracts are more concrete than words of any legal and binding document. They build trust, commitment and loyalty to the leader in good and challenging times. Leaders who lack credibility break psychological contracts with their people and will not have loyal followers, let alone inspired ones.
