The leader sets the tone—both consciously and on subtle levels—for what’s acceptable behavior and what’s not.Effective team leaders exhibit certain habits and behavioral qualities that inspire their teams to produce their best work.
They are willing to put the team’s success above their own. Coming from a place of selfless service, the effective team leader consciously finds ways to uplift the team and its individual members in need.
They go first in difficult discussions, which often leaves them vulnerable. Exhibiting courage, they bring difficult behavioral issues to the surface. Unwilling to engage in office politics or posturing, they consistently call out passive-aggressive behavior and people’s fear of conflict.
They understand that the purpose of an organization is to capitalize on the strengths of its employees instead of focusing on improving individual weakness. Team leaders that play to team member’s strengths build more powerful teams.
Transcending personality conflicts and petty behavioral problems within the team, they keep everyone focused on what matters most: The results the team is committed to achieving.You can’t pick and choose from the above list of habits. To be an effective team leader, you must adopt all five habits.
