Not what you signed up for, right?

From what I’ve seen from my clients, there are two common scenarios:

  1. You feel they need constant attention because they require a little more handholding.
    You’re a control freak who must know every little thing. â €
  2. When you’re a leader in your organization, like it or not, what you do and say directly impacts your team’s psyche. How do you find the balance between managing and micro-managing?
  • For the newbies, schedule regular one-on-ones to address challenges and provide feedback.
  • Please don’t rush in to solve every problem for them. Provide the resources and support they need, step away, and hold them accountable.
  • Setting realistic expectations for yourself and your team is key. This not only prevents surprises and future conflicts but also builds a foundation of trust and transparency.
  • Recognize the value of delegation and trust in your employees. By doing so, you’re empowering them and instilling confidence in their abilities to execute effectively.
  • Avoid putting them under the microscope. Give them space to succeed; consider it a great learning opportunity if they fail.


I can’t emphasize enough the importance of knowing what drives your employees. By taking the time to really understand each team member’s motivators, you’ll not only guide them toward success but also build better relationships within your team.
