It's not micromanagment. But I would like you to report to me every single day and discuss everything that you and every member of your team does every day.

    Oh man I fucking love this one.

    Do it. And I mean fucking do it every god damned day. Setup a 1 hour call at noon and talk about everything you did.

    Who you talked to, why they needed you, how long you talked, specific questions they asked, the answers you gave, why those answers are the answer, etc.

    Give it a good two weeks. Nobody will ever want to talk to you again...ever.

    Bonus, you'll never be questioned about what your value is because nobody will want the hour long soapbox meetings to return.

    @sparrowEatsHawk I take the "1990s unhealthy parent catches you smoking" approach to dumbass management requests.

    You want to smoke? Then we're going to sit here and you're going to smoke this whole fucking carton in front of me to prove to me you *really* want it.

    I have made shitty managers up and quit because they just couldn't take it.

    Bad managers just can't handle employees that give them *exactly* what they asked for.

    @sariel I did this, but because I am a dumbass who thought I should just do what they ask because I'm fucking tired, and this exact same thing happened. Now I am waiting to be fired cause no one wants to talk to me. I have done literally zero tickets in the past year. I am not exaggerating. I wish I took advantage of last year and instead of feeling bad, and trying to do the job... JUST FUCKED AROUND.

    Oh, and lol, btw... the person I did this with was a manager who quit. And then the VP I report to also quit. I love how because I am not toxic, literally no one touches me, but I am the most miserable.
