Having one or two micromanagers in your organisation might be troublesome, but it’s unlikely to threaten your success. However, having a business full of micromanagers – and, therefore, little employee autonomy – presents a much more significant threat to your organisation’s survival.

Employees who are free to make their own choices about how they go about their responsibilities are happier, more committed, more productive and more loyal than those whose every action is prescribed. Autonomy is also an important contributing factor to employees’ sense of engagement with their work and organisation, and plays a big part in workers’ decisions to stay with an organisation or seek a new role elsewhere.
