    Tips on How To Deal With A Micromanager

    Tips on How To Deal With A Micromanager

    Micromanagers aren't always doing it just to be jerks. They may not even know they are coming across this way. Often they have learned bad habits from other bad leaders. Other times they are under stress and aren't sure how to deal.

    Tips:


    Try to give them the benefit of the doubt

    Try to explain how you felt during a specific time the micro managing was too much

    Offer a counter solution

    Accept that it may never change and create a plan

    Get support from your team

    Inform, inform, inform

    Think ahead

    Uncover the fears

    Set boundaries

    Evaluate yourself and your work

    Proactively work to increase trust where / when you can

    How To Interview A Potential Employer For The Right Culture Fit

    How To Interview A Potential Employer For The Right Culture Fit

    It is not fun or cool to be excited about a new job just to start and find out it is terrible.

    Sometimes we can avoid it.

    Other times we can't, people are really good liars.

    Questions to help assess culture fit:


    Ask all the people you interview with why they like working for the company
    If you talk to people who will be on the team you'll be working on, ask them to describe the team dynamics
    Research
    Go through your network, do you know anyone who works / worked there?
    Make sure you get to meet/interview with the right people (future manager, peers, people you'll partner with, etc.)
    Know what culturally hasn't been a fit for you and ask professional questions around those specific items
    Don't be afraid to ask follow up questions to answers in number 6
    Peer question - what's on thing you would change in your role and why


    Stay or go?

    It depends!


    How bad is it
    Benefits to staying?
    How miserable are you?
    How long has it been?
    Confidence in avoiding this in your next role?
