If you do only one thing for your team,
help them to understand the purpose of
their work, their role, their team and, in
turn, the organisation
Most important role of team leader: to
help people to find meaning in what they
How many meetings the team holds
Where appraisals are held
Who works with whom on what bits of
Who lead the meetings
Who chair the meetings and who type
up the minutes
Team Leader's main qualities are:
strategic thinking, having a vision
capacity of empathy
raised social perception
understanding and using own uniqueness
Beforehand you have to learn how to control yourself,
only then you can lead others.
Think about your weaknesses and strengths,
try to find out who you really are and what
you want to achieve in the future.
being a leader does not equal with being a dominator
rather its determined and goal oriented.
What Kind of environment
that you want to create ?
1. Do team members know WHAT they have to do?
You need to give them exact and clear
tasks. Explain as long as they understand
2. Do team members know HOW to carry out the task?
Let them explain their plan of action –
that way you get a clear picture who
has understood his/her assignment or
3. Do members know WHY they have to do something?
4. Does somebody from the team find your approach wrong?
You need to ask and listen. If you see that a team
member has stronger arguments, then agree and
choose a new approach. However, if the
member's arguments are not acceptable, then
you have to explain why yours are better. It is
important to tolerate criticism.
If the importance is humanely justified then you have to
resign the tasks for certain time period. Let the member
solve his/her problems and return to his/her tasks later. If
the importance is not justified, it is likely to happen again
in the future –you should turn to TM Member Support.
