You have now taken over an organization that had a micro-manager as their previous manager.  The manager didn’t trust the people, wanted to be involved in everything, and ended up just telling the people what to do.  You have now taken over the organization and don’t know the technology or processes as well as the previous manager.  You cannot tell the people what to do.

How would you encourage your people to take more ownership of the outcomes and decide what to do more on their own?
