Check Your Grip

This week, I shared a report that moves managers to adopt a remote mindset. Frequent checkins are good, but don’t overdo it. To find the frequency, ask your people what works based on their personal style. Micromanaging won’t do you any favors, and too much distance will rob you of the moments critical to success.

Jesse Sostrin (HBR) says asking not only informs a baseline, “but also gives them autonomy in how the delegated work will move forward. Have an eye for detail, but don’t nitpick or act like you know everything — your coworkers won’t like feeling stifled.” Still having trouble? Let’s talk. Leave a comment or get in touch.
