How to deal with a Project Manager with controlling nature

0 votes
In the new world of Project Management, we consider supportive/ facilitating leaders more successful. On the contrary, the ground reality still seems far from ideal.
A  majority of the  Project Managers today still believe they need to control the team and the resources . How should one deal with this situation as a team member?

It depends on whether the Project Manager in question is open to feedback or not. If they're open to it and if the team member has built a positive working relationship with them, it's worth having a 1:1 conversation with the PM to assist them to understand the impacts on the team of their command & control behavior. The team member might offer to support the PM within the transformation process to being a far better servant-leader.

If the feedback falls on deaf ears, the team member will need to decide if the situation is corrosive enough to warrant escalation or whether they should just "grin and bear it" till the project is over.

If the PM's manager requires 360-degree feedback at the end of the project, the team member can also provide feedback on the PM's development needs...
