Bully-style leadership

Donald Trump reminds of a lot of people I've ran into over the years and no later than yesterday, when my wife and I were volunteering at the Sundance Film Festival.

Folks that are bold, daring and don't want to discuss anything. They make statements of fact, good or bad, and leave no room for even discussing or questioning what they claim to be their reality. That clearly is a form of bullying their way into power and renounce any form of compromise unless their opponent force them to do so.

Surprisingly, in most cases, that tactic works and it's also true that after some time has gone by, “victims” of that form of bullying feel somehow cheated and have a cloudy impression about the individual usurping their rights in that fashion. Accepting this behavior is akin of submissiveness or naivete.

When some individuals have the nerves to impose that style leadership, always respond and put them in their right place!
