The best business leaders are benevolent dictators who ignore trendy collaborative-management theories and take a "just call me God" approach to management, writes George Cloutier.

"Burn your lovey-dovey management degree," he advises. "Be in control and be controlling. It's better to drive your employees nuts than to lose money."
