Guiding fellow team members by spearheading efforts and steering them into direction
Stepping up to guide fellow team members and to spearhead the movement towards the target is very crucial for the entire team. Team leaders must lead by example and it is their encouragement that is very important for the team to move ahead. Retaining their position of authority while working with other individuals is very tricky but being a good communicator and an encouraging leader can help the team understand the situation. Leaders need to encourage their team members to nurture open and honest relationships amongst each other, which can help them give and receive feedback. Feedback is an important tool to improve each individual which in turn can improve the whole team.
Fostering healthy relationships between team members leaves for an open communication channel which also makes collaboration much more effective and successful. A good leader will maintain a high team morale. They will also understand the strengths of each individual and delegate work accordingly. This can come only through team building, which through interaction between the team and the development of team spirit and a cohesive team. Interaction between members must be in an informal setting, in order to build a genuine rapport. Trying something unfamiliar can help bond.
