How You Can Improve the Focus in Your Team Being a Team Leader

July 31, 2010 by  Filed under: Management 

If you are a team leader, the onus of creating the right focus in your team is definitely on you. It is up to you to mold your team in such a way that it becomes focused and productive, and for that you might need to implement a lot of things. But, everything begins with a little self-introspection. You have to make sure you have the qualities that you will need to guide your team. You need to sit back, relax and think whether you are doing things the right way.

Here we are going to talk about the most important things you have to be sure of yourself if you want to guide your team fruitfully.

1. Always make sure you have surrounded yourself with the right people. These people could be your colleagues or friends or even your employees. All of us humans need reassurance, and there is nothing like someone you believe in telling you that you are doing something right. You begin to value these people and their opinions start mattering to you. It is a good idea to associate with such people whom you can trust and then heed to what they have to say about certain situations that arise in the line of your work.

2. But, most importantly, it is your gut feeling that is important. Another person’s opinion will not matter to most people if their inner gut is telling them something different. Practice hearing this inner voice within you; it will always lead you the right way because it can give you suggestions that are weighed on several scales.

3. The three things that you have to sort out are:
(i) what it is that frightens you the most,
(ii) what it is that you or your team is lacking the most and
(iii) what will happen if you don’t take a particular action.

When you are aware of the answers of these three things, you will be able to do your jobs in a much better way.

4. Always make a proper and firm decision on what kind of leader you need to become. It is not easy to become that most of the time, and you may not be able to do that overnight, but you surely need to start doing that. Change yourself according to the situation and become more productive for your team.
