I came across an article which got me thinking. It talks about how some bosses have an overbearing, “all transmission, no reception” style. One method for gaining a feel for whether you or your boss fall into that category or not is to figure out the ratio of statements and assertions to the number of questions asked. And then how many times are others allowed to ask questions or interrupt or make assertions? How much does the “high status primate in the group” interrupt or add value statements, often before the other has even finished talking?
