An employee works with a leader who is constantly jumping in and taking over her tasks and her customers. As a dedicated, high-performing employee she is having a hard time working with a leader who is constantly undermining her.

Chris Harper and Jen Dirk join the panel to candidly discuss what you should do as a leader and an employee if you find yourself working for a micro-manager.

Leadership Recommendations

1. Find Common Ground with your Employees-Every leader should have "go-to" stories: A struggle story, A learning from change story and A success story.

2. Hire good people and then get out of their way. If you feel the need to jump into every interaction and be involved in EVERY decision - realize you are part of the problem. Trusting the people around you and being there to support them is your role as a leader.

Employee Recommendation

1. Address the problem before it becomes a bigger issue. Ask the question, "Is there something I should be doing differently?"
