People that Cannot Delegate are Micro Managers

Managers that cannot delegate are sensible leaders if they are on a learning curve. They are called micro-managers. They are also the type who know how to evaluate subordinates objectively. The first type of manager mentioned is a corporate asset who is willing to roll-up his sleeves and do dirty job.
The second type (macro-managers) is someone who is a popular manager who thought of public opinion as more important in his staying power in the company. Managers who delegate everything are those that embrace the traditional management school of thought.
Among these 2 types of manager, it is always the micro-manager that is preferred by business owners.
The macro-manager however is the one that is always backed up by laborers.
As to the reason why? I can continue on giving my analysis why.
