I am sure many of us have come across micro managers, I have been told there isn't the best way to tackle them. However, there must be a pattern to look upon and Proact rather than React. My POV here is both, handing them( micromanagers) from the top management level and as well as other workers who work under and around the micro manager. But more importantly a tackleful strategy or a method top management can take. Need some real life experiences in dealing with them and how one can be brought into control. Following next - How can they be avoided (developing them)? - Is the culture of the company which should be blamed for their behavior?

The best way is always through helping your people to grow.

Think about the micro managers motivation - typically it is fear driven. Alleviate that fear. Give them the One Minute Manager book and talk about it... If they are tough to approach, hire an outside consultant to come in and talk with the whole group. Micromanagers run good employees if you are not betting on this horse, perhaps it is time to restructure the department...
