Early in my first supervisory role, I was called the dreaded "m" word – micromanager. It stung. I thought I was being supportive, providing clarity, and anticipating her needs. My team member affirmed that I was doing all those things, but I was also taking all the fun out of it. I removed one of the most important ingredients in her motivation – autonomy. By prescribing everything to the "T," I was denying her freedom to envision how she might fulfill her own role. I thought I was saving her time and errors, but was actually robbing her of the opportunity to connect to the effort in a deeper way. Thankfully, for us, we celebrate Christ our King who is no micromanager. He gives us the Way and also the freedom to forge our own path to Him. Do we follow His lead in our invitation to others?
