What is the next step after presenting your own view and those views (as well as others' views) are steam-rolled and ignored?

My Director encouraged me to try to "manage up" my manager as it was well known that he was like this - but I (and others) found it to be impossible?

Your responsibility is to present your views. It is the responsibility of your manager, or leader, to listen, and use what he or she hears to inform decisions. Which means that your ideas may not be used.

It is definitely an issue if your ideas are ignored, but ultimately it's a problem for the leader who is responsible and has accountability for decisions made with less than all the information and input provided.
