One time I had a set builder working on a set, who pushed back on almost everything I asked him to do. Big, small, didn’t matter… he just undermined me. We were installing a big piece of plexi in this flat and the guys were talking about how to do it. So I drew a picture and said, “Here’s how. Go to Home Depot, get those things and do it this way. It’ll be the most cost effective and structurally stable.” Ten minutes later, they were still arguing about how they were going to do it, so finally I said. “Is there something wrong with the way I’ve asked you to do it?” He said, “No.” So I said. “Will it work if you do it my way?” and he said “Yes.” I simply told him, “Then please stop discussing it, and do what I asked.” And I never hired that guy again. Yes, my heart was racing, and I felt like crying, but at the end of the day, I felt better knowing that I was doing my job instead of letting someone else undermine me. And now, I only hire men who can handle having a female boss and everything is great. It’s a little harder when the disrespect is coming from above, but I usually deal with it in a similar way. It’s mostly about having the confidence to say, “This is my job and here’s how I’m going to do it and I’m awesome.” Usually if you give off that vibe right away, in the first meeting, people won’t mess with you.
