Whether you're a parent or you lead people in another capacity, your job is not to micromanage--it's the opposite of micromanaging.
Your job is to prepare them to manage themselves as they enter into their first year of college or get a promotion.
The transition from high school to college is no small thing. 18-year-olds go from living with their parents and being among the oldest and most experienced kids at their school to being a college freshman, living in a dorm with a stranger and not even know their way around campus.
