Buffalo, NY – April 30, 2013 – While certain situations warrant close supervision, micromanagement can squelch productivity, motivation, and employee development. The situation can lead to a vicious cycle: The more a leader micromanages, the less likely an employee is to take proactive action. Donna Hartney, Ph.D. and self-help book author, offers advice– drawn from her “aha” moment research– for overcoming the micromanagement urge.

“When leaders know that micromanagement isn’t the answer but find themselves unable to choose otherwise, an “aha” moment can deliver a new perspective and a willingness to let go,” says Hartney, author of the self-help book titled The AHA! Handbook: How to spark the insights that will transform your life and career.

The_AHA_Handbook“My research has shown that we can proactively prime ourselves for pivotal moments of clarity,” Hartney continues and offers leaders advice for doing so in order to overcome their micromanagement tendencies:

The AHA! Handbook is the first research-based self-help book to teach readers how to prime themselves for life-changing insights. The book counters conventional wisdom, which holds that momentous, life-altering “aha” moments are rare events outside a person’s control and is based on Hartney’s analysis of 99 published, first-hand accounts of life-changing insights. The book is published by Clarenell Press, LLC and is available in bookstores nationwide. Learn more at http://www.donna-hartney.com/book-2/.
