English term or phrase:bark orders
You can't just bark orders and expect things to get completed exactly the way you want them done. As a manager, you are supposed to lead by example
Uma das definições que encontrei:
"To "bark out orders" means to command people to do things loudly, clearly, and angrily. Use this phrase to describe someone who is ordering around a whole group of people. For example: Military officers are used to barking out orders, but for the rest of us it can seem intimidating to directly tell someone what to do." www.phrasemix.com/phrases/bark-out-orders
Explanation: Se compararmos essa expressão com o modo ríspido e arrogante que os militares falam com os soldados para ordenar-lhes algo, então podemos dizer que eles não somente dão ordens, eles gritam ordens.
