When are you overstepping in a work environment and when are you not? What about micromanaging? How do you tell the difference?

For example, a calendar invite was created by a Product Owner but I saw that one of our designers that should be included is missing from the invite, so I tagged her on slack to see if she needs the invite forwarded or not and wanted to make sure she's included.

We're both Design Leads, no reports. I just joined 2mths ago.

Did I micromanage? Or overstep?

That seems like a completely reasonable thing to do. Plus, it's not really micromanaging if you're not telling them what to do/how to do your work. I wish more people at my old company had included their coworkers in relevant conversations.

Sounds good to me too…. as long as you asked the Product Owner who created the meeting.

I got a bad observation. He said one of my students were not awake and lively on Zoom. Ugh. What? I see teachers that take 30-50 days off some working 2 days a week days. They get perfect marks. I can't even look my principal in the face now.
