This scenario would apply to all levels of engineers. For example, a junior engineer may have operated under the authoritative management style from their previous company or team. It also could be another management style such as an engineer likes working under absentee management but has been underperforming. Micromanagement would help this person but makes this person unhappy. Different scenarios that weigh a person’s happiness to a person’s growth or project success.
Being flexible and slowly adjusting is a good answer.
