Leadership In Tech Episode 46: No Such Thing As Implied Orders

"Have you ever thought about doing that...this way?" We've all heard it before, but when you hear from your boss, what do you do? Is it an order, or is he just giving you a pointer (take it or leave it)? 

Well, that's what our hosts Zac and Errol discuss today on the 46th episode of Leadership in Tech.  Follow along as they approach the issue of 'implied orders' from both the employers, and employees, point of view.
