Why doesn’t my new coworker see me as a team lead?

I finally have a chance to work in a team as a project manager! Super excited. For some reason one of the newly hired people on the team has no respect for me. He just treats me as his drafter or something. Doesn’t follow my directions and not producing any work.

Do you have tips on how to gain authority from a person new to your firm? I’m seen as a competent designer by everyone who worked with me for a few month. But it’s a gradual process every time. I must be exuding incompetence unconsciously or something. 🙂

Any idea on what it can be?
