Never introduce a managerial change without first introducing that change. If you're going to make a change to how you manage your team, it works far better to tell them what you're doing in advance.

Suppose your boss one day started changing the way he interacted with you. He wanted more weekly meetings, or he started expecting more frequent reports from you, or he instituted regular mini-performance reviews. Would you like it? Would you know why he was doing it? Would you assume it was a "good sign?" Would it help if you didn't know whether he was asking for these changes from everyone else, or just from you?
