Or not. It's a fine line. When you are in charge and are a female, authoritative often sounds bitchy.
I'm trying though, and I think I'm getting better.
Being a Head Ref to crew of excessively smart and well educated people is remarkably annoying.
They're smart, like really smart. And they know it.
Telling them what to do can be hard, and sometimes I'm not sure they always want to listen.
But I think they throw me a line and go along with my requests. Maybe just out of kindness.
Either way I appreciate it.
