  • Are You Micro-Managing Yourself? Some people have the mindset that if they do not do it themselves then it will not get done right and they are constantly afraid to let go of operational details which limit them from being able to be creative on a higher level. Many successful entrepreneurs can be classified as “highly creative control freaks.” It is easy to understand this because in order to be successful in a new business you have to be strong in order to make something out of nothing. A new business is a lot like your children. You will do anything to protect them and nurture them until they grow up and can be on their own. People with a new business feel the same way about that business and will do whatever it takes to protect it and nurture it to success. For a new business to be a success in today’s world, it takes tremendous determination and focus, as well as a certain lack of sensitivity to others. However, if this is overdone and micro-managed too much, it can be their undoing. In order to prevent the strangulation of micro-management and continue in your visionary capacity to grow and expand, you must totally trust your team and their systems as well as yourself. It is your business yes, but you hired your employees for a reason, trust them and let them do what you hired them to do. Empower them to feel important and let them get the feeling that are an intricate cog within your business and they will not let you down. If you continue to do everything yourself and micro-manage both yourself and them, they will never grow or perform the way that you always hoped they would. If you show them respect for their abilities, then they will show you respect and give it their all on a daily basis and help your business grow. Just remember that it takes time, be open to questions and let them know that no question is a dumb question. If they feel comfortable coming to you when they are unsure of something and you can explain it to them without looking down upon them or making them feel stupid, they will have no need to ask again and will perform the way you want them to. Remember that a new driver will not be smooth and will be rather jerky behind the wheel at first, but as time goes on, they are just as competent as the next guy on the road. Empower them by extending their horizons and they will cruise at a higher level. If you continue to not trust your employees and do everything yourself or are constantly looking over their shoulders, they will never feel respected or that you have the confidence in them to do the job you hired them for. Eventually, you will feel overwhelmed, and like you are close to losing control. Are You Micro-Managing Yourself? Want more advice about driving more traffic to your online business?

  • Entrepreneurs need to break out of their comfort zone of operational control and let go by getting good people in the right places, holding them accountable and monitoring them appropriately, but not too much. If you try to keep too many things in your head and oversee every single aspect of your business, you will lose objectivity and less important things will bother you more than they should. You will not be giving the tactical and strategic operations of the business the objective attention it deserves. The trick is to let your employees do their jobs, show them respect, empower them to do more important tasks and to be able to let go, and trust that things are being handled by other people and that they are doing just as good a job as you would. Then you are truly free to be thinking about more important things and not every little thing, and you business will flourish and reward you for it. Are You Micro-Managing Yourself?
