Better team leaders make better teams

The people who keep your business moving forward

They need to build confidence, trust and earn the respect of the team. So what are some of the the key qualities and skills they need?

  • Communication -  good quality written and verbal communication builds and strengthens relationships, prevents misunderstandings and diffuses conflict. Good communicators usually get more positive responses from their team.
  • Handling difficult situations and conversations - having those difficult conversations is not easy but by following some guidelines they can be made more straightforward and they are often not as difficult as we imagine!
  • Delegating - by setting clear expectations without giving step by step instructions enables team members to perform optiimaly 
  • Integrity and fair play - honesty, openess and consistency will build trust and loyalty amongst the team
  • Motivation and giving credit - Working out what makes individual people tick will improve your ability to motivate and get the best out of others 
  • Prioritisation and time management - planning time and resources allows you to be more organisaed to make sure you work on the important, not just the urgent

Are you confident that you have invested enough in these people to get the best result for your business?
