I am a new manager with four direct reports. I have always had great performance reviews and am in good standing at my company. Recently, my boss held a meeting with my direct reports where they filled out a survey about my performance as their manager. The results were not anonymous, and when my boss shared them with me, he disclosed that “someone” mentioned I wasn’t allowing my team to learn, but rather I was micromanaging them. In discussing my frustration with a peer, she expressed that he is not allowed to do this; it’s an engagement survey and he does not operate in an HR role. Can you shed some light?
