Autocratic leadership sounds awful–like something headed up by a meglomaniac. And it certainly can be, but it’s not always. Sometimes a job needs a manager who comes in and takes charge. Sometimes, though, that’s a failure.

  1. That’s a tough one. ALL relationships require at least two parties carrying their weight and those “calling it in” are too common.

    So, does that mean the “autocrat” is that way to get things done or does it mean they are that way because they are bad leaders or does it mean that those being “led” are not carrying their weight….not so simple…..

  2. Part of the problem with “democratic” leadership is most people don’t really, truly, want to take ownership for their thoughts and ideas and its ensuing responsibility.

  3. Dictatorship is the most efficient form of government. When it’s good – an enlightened dictator – it’s very efficient at good governing. When it’s bad, it’s very efficient at being bad.

    The enlightened dictator is very rare.
