Do you micromanage>

If so, stop.

Lots of management texts and courses tell us about the details of planning, organising and managing.  One problem is that you can tend to think that you yourself have to immerse themselves in the detail.  You  become a micromanager, obsessed about small steps and detail - instead of concentrating on the big picture and trusting others 'down the chain' to worry about detail. 
Employees see this as a lack of trust - and can often even see you doing parts of their job for them.  Naturally, they turn off and disengage

Nobody likes to be micromanaged. So, don’t do it. You have more important things to concentrate on - vision and strategy.
