The one who remains most suspicious of The Organization  
Of all organization men, the true executive is the one who remains most suspicious of The Organization. If there is one thing that characterizes him, it is a fierce desire to control his own destiny and, deep down, he resents yielding that control to The Organization, no matter how velvety its grip…

"Suspicious" part is about me.
Not only I do not trust my organization, I do not fully trust anybody (or trust, but verify).

Just today a developer told me that I like to test a lot (e.g. test if product documentation and my understanding of that documentation actually matches with reality). In his mind I test too much.

Now I think I do not test enough.
Consider what happens with organization if it does not have enough suspicious people:

Не было ли это завуалированной жалобой на микроменеджмент с вашей стороны?

My micromanagement was mentioned separately and explicitly :-)

I know the dangers of micromanagement (I have limited amount of time), but it's very risky to delegate without checking it first.

I try to delegate and with time delegate more and more.
But I would always have to always test overall result, otherwise my organization would loose the way and collapse.
