    How to deal with a team leader who just keeps on giving orders and never asks for the opinion of his team members?

    I am working in a software company. We are a group of 10 members working on a particular project. Our team leader is not good at all as he just believes in giving orders to the members and never takes their opinion on anything. We are really very miffed with this attitude of his. How to deal with such a situation?

    The best thing you can do is to follow his orders, if he is a good team leader he should listen to others opinion also and motivate things that encourage team members to work much better. Many times by listening to others ideas you are able to find something great. But if he doesn't want and just wants you all to follow his orders just do the same. With such type of attitude he is not going to get much success in his career. You just complete the work as asked by you if in future your boss questions about the teams performance than at that time you all can raise your voice and can explain to him that your team leader was not at all good and he didn't listened to you and your team members.

    On the other hand it may also be possible that he knows the way how the company works and how the projects has to be so he doesn't want to listen to anybody as he want to work in the pre designed fashion which either his boss has instructed him. In any case do what he expects from you and don't give him a chance to complain against you in front of your boss.
