Micromanagement Ramifications

I know that I have micromanaged my team when I am necessary for nearly every function of the team. There is a sweet spot between abdication and micromanagement that every team leader should strive to accomplish. When my teammates have been conditioned by me to check with me before every decision, I have micromanged them to the point of prompt dependency. They won’t move until I say to. This creates an environment that lacks accountability because teammates never have to own their decisions. A micromanged team is tightly controlled at the cost of efficiency and a secure future, minus the current necessary leader.
