Do you micromanage?

I’m not proud of it, but I am a micromanager.

I used to work for a micromanager. It wasn’t pleasant; it was hard on my self-confidence and I swore that I would never become a micromanager. “Mike” used to follow up on every detail; he used to give me step-by-step instructions on how to do things I had done a thousand times, and he would make notes on every little thing that was not done the way he would have done it (and bring it up during my review).
