...Business people are typically dictators and - generally - make very poor politicians as they are temperamentally and experientially not used to hearing others out and negotiating agreeable outcomes....or admitting they might be wrong. Of course you can't tell them this either as they don't listen. Rinse and repeat...
While that might be a popular view it is not one that stands up in my experience.
I have worked in a number of countries and many organisations with CEO's, senior management and occasionally boards and I have in fact found the opposite to be the case. Well, let me put it another way, I and their own staff involved have always had a considerate and interested hearing from them, your own experience and that of others who provide advice or analysis to them may, of course, vary.
