Reseña del editor
What is micro management? More importantly, what can be done about it? In My Way or the Highway, Harry Chambers proves that micromanagement can be objectively identified and successfully resisted both by those who inflict it and by those who are its victims
In an informal, entertaining style Chambers describes five specific defining traits of micromanagers: placing their own self interest above everything else; controlling and manipulating time; attempting to determine exactly how everything must be done; requiring elaborate approval processes; and establishing dysfunctional monitoring and reporting requirements.Ver Descripción del producto

A good psychologist friend of mine recommended this book when he and I started discussing the mess that is my place of employment. Yes, the company is successful and receive kudos and praise from our customers. Yes, we employ many people. Yes, most of the managers are NOT this way. BUT - the few that ARE make it absolutely miserable for their subordinates!
This book so absolutely floored me in it's detailing and identifying of micromanaging behavior that I've now read it through, cover-to-cover, three times!
The insight it contains has helped greatly reduce my workplace stress by helping me understand that IT ISN'T ME, after having been on the receiving end of this type of management style for several years... In fact, I purchased additional copies for several of my co-workers!
This book should be a must-read, with a PASS/FAIL test at the end, for ALL potential management candidates BEFORE they're put in a position of authority!!!
Also, if you are a manager, and you honestly want to find out if you are perhaps micromanaging your staff, this book will help you realign your management style so that those individuals that report to you can find enjoyment coming to work.
If you are a micromanagee you may need to get a coaching service to accompany this book. If you are a micromanger, reading this book is the giant leap to change yourself. Either ways this book is an important milestone in terms of situational awareness and self-development. I highly recommend it.
