Over my life I’ve found that most excessively dominant people I’ve met in business and private have usually been bullies! I now understand those same people deep-down are just very insecure but don’t understand it. The fact is, they dominate because they are not prepared to allow other people to take responsibility and to be able to influence others around them. This behaviour is usually conditioned from childhood for one reason or another. I often hear people say that confident people are arrogant and some say dominant; this may well be true. However, good leaders who lead from the front are self-confident for a very good reason, they draw in people to them, people who trust them and are happy to be led by them.
