    I saw "hands on" in a job ad. It is listed as one of the requirements. Thank you.

    A manager who is "hands on" keeps a close eyes on what his subordinates do, likes to do things himself or see them done under his close supervision.

    A "hands off" manager prefers to let people work more independently, letting them make more decisions on their own and operate without his close or constant supervision.
