Most of us cannot stand the word "micromanage" because of its negative connotations. You'll often hear people who are newer in business say that you should never micromanage.

But what is the meaning of micromanaging? In essence, it is to "control every part however small," Patrick Bet-David says in this video. He uses the example of billionaire Mark Cuban, who has said that he "micromanages CEOs and leaders until I trust them."

Bet-David breaks down micromanagement in a way that perhaps you haven't before and hopefully untangle some of the confusion you have in your mind regarding the misunderstood practice.
