I have five direct reports: marketing director, sales director, bids director and presales director and hr director. They are my areas of focus. The also have areas of focus, i.e. HR has provide incoming flow of candidates, optimize motivation, keep staf happy etc. areas of focus. When we have regular meetings I run with them through their AOFs and projects, noting down next actions they promise to do till the next meeting. I end up with my system full of their projects
Is that so-called micro-management? If the answer is yes, then what should I ask during our weekly meetings to have that at the proper management level?
