When I write blog posts, I always try to shake off any thoughts about the future talkbacks I’m going to receive. Trying to dodge hostile comments when you write is a surefire recipe for mediocre posts. Even now, as I’m writing the headline of this post, I can already envision the reactions. The organizational culture of all startups operates under pretty straightforward rules, and ‘Thou Shalt Learn to Let Go’ is one of the commandments being preached.
To let go = Good
To give 100% independence to employees = Good
A CEO that is involved in the minor details = Bad
Micromanagement = Bad
But is that really in the best interest of the organization and its employees?
