Ask a ton of questions
In a micromanager’s perfect world, she’d have the ability to clone herself so that she’d be able to do everyone’s job herself. That way, she could be 100 percent sure that all work would be completed exactly how she wants. Unfortunately, modern science has not afforded us with those capabilities yet, so she has to delegate. One great way to keep her out of your hair while in the middle of a project is to get granular and ask questions about her preferences for each project upfront.
