Are you a control freak?Sep 01, 2021
Inspired Product Leadership for the Overworked and Overwhelmed
Being a control freak does the opposite of motivating your teams...it demotivates them. Whether its getting into the swim lane of engineering, controlling every task of the cross functional group, or demanding detailed status every day...being a control freak hurts you and those around you.
If you’re persistently frustrated, you’re a control freak.
Reflection for control freaks:
- What’s the worst that will happen if you stop trying to control things?
- Embrace reality. What can you control? What can’t you control?
- How might you trust someone today?
