Probably not even a strategy. Just, you know, he's the boss and you're not, so he'll do what he wants, while you do what he says.

I'm betting that that's the ballpark you're in with this.

Of course, that's how I see management on the whole, of any kind, really. There are exceptions, and I have many friends- including my wife- in management positions, so I do seem certain things from their perspective.

But I think a large percentage of people in managerial positions tend to function this way, to varying degrees.
