Helicopter Micromanagement refers to a manager who pays extremely close attention to his or her subordinate's experiences and problems, above and beyond the normal micromanagement style normally exhibited.
My manager told me she is making a surprise appearance at the meet and greet today. Some people just have to observe everything and anything. I'm surprised she doesn't come to my house to make sure I brush my teeth correctly. Talk about helicopter micromanagement.
