Conclusion

Dictatorial managers believe that highly centralized decision making is the best option. They seek relatively little input from others. Although efficient, there are serious costs in terms of accessing all of the information and ideas relevant to a decision, innovation, harnessing the energy of team members, and growing new leadership.

Changing the behavior of dictatorial managers is generally not that difficult. If it is, the manager is more than simply dictatorial. Effecting change can usually be accomplished by having superiors encourage the change, providing some executive coaching, and keeping an eye on how the measurement-reward system and messages sent out by senior leadership inadvertently support dictatorial styles.
