Why Withhold information
I guess I needed to clarify myself...since she needs to know everything that goes on in the company (especially in other departments that don't report to her, but have incidental contact with me) she needs to know what is going on at all times. She overheard (eavesdropped really) a discussion between myself and another dept. manager about a software purchase that she knew nothing about, she told me after the manager left that I should talk to her about it...long story short, it delayed the purchase of the much needed software by 3 months while she thought about buying it. Micromangers over manage, but they are also awful decision makers, that's why I tell her as little as possible!
