    i am the opposite, at work i always tell my crew what to do. i never ask them to do something, and i never say 'for us' or 'for me'. it is just 'go do this and 'go do that'.

    i think you are right, direct orders don't foster much of an equal team.
    but i work labor and construction, and i think in labor/construction you garner more respect from your employees by being an obvious and clear leader, by making decisions and giving orders.

    that is why i don't say 'for us', unless it really is for both of us.

    Being an obvious and clear leader garners respect in more industries than construction, trust me. I'm a policy analyst/database analyst/contract manager/project manager and you know what? When my boss tells me what to do I'm thankful for not having to hear any fluffy light-talk. Some people actually do appreciate direct communication.
