Have also seen a lot of ideas get pushed into the corners and shut down before even chance to unveil. Back in the corporate world, I had a boss who would flat out laugh and embarass people for disagreeing and proposing ideas other than hers or another manager’s. She would always try to grab the attention of the room with her loud voice and “I am a so smart” behavior and demeanor. It was quite frustrating to watch and see this lack of leadership and collaborative innovation. Eventually my boss became unapproachable and a little later the company fell apart because of the other managers like this one in this company. Sometimes it is the culture, the masses of the company that nourishes a self centered, inward pointing perspective.
