Do you have more meetings with your manager since you started working from home? Have you been told to communicate more? Is your manager suddenly more present on your team slack channel? Do you have to send status reports more regularly? If you answer one or more of these questions with yes, you seem to be dealing with a micromanager.
Having everybody working from home is an important step for each and every company that is able to do so, to protect their employees. But don’t expect your staff to be able to give 100%.
I’m a Manager since 2011 and I always thought I am quite a good listener, that was until I attended the Co-Active Coaching training where I got introduced to the different levels of listening and had the chance to extensively practice it.
I facilitated a Hackathon week recently and on the last day, we went through all the questions and topics that made it in the Parking Lot during the week.
