Japanese term or phrase: 仕切る
This is from a document describing power harassment.

態度によるもの

**仕切る**
他者の考え方から行動にいたるまで、あらゆる面を**仕切ろう**とする

怒鳴る
怒鳴ったり、わめいたり、ののしったりすることによって支配しようとする

脅す
怒ったり、恐がらせたり、威圧したり、おどかしたりする


I saw some translations for 仕切る in ALC, but I am not completely sure what they mean in this context. Do they mean that the perpetrator of the harassment tries to do everything himself/herself, including things that are supposed to be the jobs of others? Or is there some other meaning I am not grasping? Thanks.

manipulate, dominate, control, be domineering
Explanation:
This term seems poorly explained despite whatever attempts to explain it on the Internet...

Given your particular context, I think the word is being used in a negative way.

The first things I can think of are: manipulate, dominate, control, tyrannize

Alternative: be domineering (mostly used as an adj.)
