that i turned in to a micro manager. our captain micro manages the freak out of us, asks questions about a report that you could only answer if you were there doing eveything yourself. so in order to stop from having to pull cruiser cam tapes for the smallest detail i began showing up at the most trivial calls with my patrolmen, stepping in and taking over, selecting and directing....... i had to step back and look at myself, then ask some of the guys to be honest and tell me if i micro manage, they said "sometimes you do". ive become what i resent but i have a plan. i will go back to supervising, leading, coaching...et cetera. when my capatain asks for detail on minor incidents i will ask to read the report hes looking at and regurgitate the information on it, when hes unsatisfied with that i will ensure my O/T is logged and i will burn DVDs of the cruiser cams and rat pack audio and simply give it to him. i will then ask if he wants me to stay on the clock reviewing the minute details. kinda smart ass, but its the only thing i can come up with right now...its been a tough night. whatcha think?
