Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it.
Sixty percent of employees don’t believe they have the opportunity to do what they do best every day at work, according to the 2017 State of the American Workplace report. Sadly, one common explanation for this is that their boss is too busy doing it for them. In our ten-year longitudinal study on executive leadership, among 2,700 leaders, 67% struggled to let go of work from previous roles. As leaders rise in organizations, they have a strong tendency to take the work that made them feel successful along with them. The resulting organizational compression — the compacting effect of leaders playing too low — leaves direct reports constrained from having impact, feeling less satisfaction from their job, and then forced to work lower than their role, too.
If you are feeling like your boss is more involved in your job than you’d want, you obviously aren’t alone. But the fact that it’s common doesn’t mean you have to accept it. Whether you report to the CEO or a first-level supervisor, it’s in both of your best interests to thrive in your own jobs, not other people’s. While the notion of confronting your boss may feel intimidating, the results can be more promising than you think. Because most leaders, especially those higher up in organizations, don’t get great feedback from those they lead, it can be refreshing to have someone volunteer it. And though frustrating, there could be any number of explanations for your boss’s behaviour.
You shouldn’t assume your boss is even aware how involved they are in your job. Start by getting aligned on expectations. Ask your boss to share what contribution they expect from you and what they see the scope of your role to be. If their answer aligns with your views, you know they are unaware of their over-involvement. However, if their answer suggests a much narrower scope than you understood your role to entail, justifying their level of involvement, then the conversation you need to start with is about mismatched expectations about what your job actually is.
Aligned or not, the conversation opens the door for you to share your expectations, as well. Let them know how the degree of their involvement makes you feel. If you both agree on the scope of your role, discuss specific examples where they have been overly involved, and how you felt that work was yours to do. If you’re not aligned on the scope of your role, then share why you feel their more narrowed definition doesn’t allow you to grow and contribute to your full potential and satisfaction.
Your boss’s excessive involvement in your job could be a form of veiled feedback, stifling though it might feel. Ask if there is something about the way you are performing the role that they find inadequate. If they jump into “reassuring” mode, telling you they think you’re doing a great job, this opens the door for you to share an example of why you are asking. I recently encouraged the Chief Marketing Officer in one of my client organizations to take this approach with her boss, the CEO. He prided himself on being a former marketer, though it had been more than a decade since he’d done it. Whenever she presented new brand campaigns to him, he enthusiastically jumped in with “suggestions” that replaced her direction with his. He enjoyed the process so much he failed to see how demoralizing it was for her. When she expressed how his involvement made her feel devalued, embarrassed in front of the team, and unimportant, he felt horrible. Beginning the conversation about her rather than him allowed him to discover the disconnection, and led to a productive conversation about how to change his behaviour.
