I think this is a great post by Jack Welch. By the way if you haven’t read his book Winning stop reading this and go get it. It’s that good.
Ok, back to micromanaging. It’s tough. As probably a former employee from another company you don’t want to be micromanaged so you don’t want to micromanage. Remember though… everything and anything that happens in your business is your responsibility. When you run a small business that is critical. You may not want to micromanage but remember as Welch advises, “Your help matters when you bring unique expertise to a situation”. Most likely you will bring that more than not.
