Effective team leadership - develop strong self-leadership skills and enhance your ability to influence others to commit to delivering the desired outcomes
Being a team leader draws on a vastly different set of skills to being a team member. Despite this important point of difference, most team members who evolve into leadership roles do so with little or no prior management or leadership training, leaving them poorly equipped for their new responsibilities.
Looking for the way forward
For most novice leaders the extra management responsibilities are challenging and highly stressful. These leaders may have a strong desire to succeed but too often they lack the knowledge and tools to support their ambitions. As a result, what should be an exciting step forward in their careers can often spiral into an overwrought sense of losing their way.
Finding the right path to developing and sustaining quality teamwork begins with demonstrating strong self-leadership capabilities. Self-leaders must be self-aware, they must know how to regulate their situational responses (especially under pressure) and they must be capable of thinking and acting optimistically. The good news is that self-leadership ‘must have’ capabilities can all be learned.
With a strong self-leadership base to work from novice leaders are ready to take on the additional skill sets necessary to lead others. When it comes to personal and team goals, leaders continually hone their ability to communicate effectively and in doing so, influence and inspire their team to sustain peak performance.
