Teamwork must start with strong leadership, and here’s 4 reasons why:
- Team leaders keep the team accountable
- Team leaders empower team members
- Team leaders streamline the decision-making process
- Team leaders keep projects moving forward
Your team should be facilitated by a leader who has a clear direction that steers the team toward a specific vision. Leaders should not be intimidated by the team. They should be confident. They should involve the team in conversation that brings high production and great performance. Leaders should also motivate and empower the team.
They should be the one who makes the best choices; who was clearly appointed leader by the whole team. Leaders should also have a clear vision to share. If they do not provide a clear vision, the team is less likely to be inspired to follow because of unpredictability.
Great leaders deliver expertise, commitment, dedication, motivation, focus, and concern for others. They are goal-oriented and understand the best way to communicate. All of these characteristics lead to productive teamwork and overall success within a company.
Does your company have a team that is facilitated by the right kind of leader?
