What is a Team Leader?

A team leader is an individual who guides, directs, and instructs a group of individuals with the main purpose of achieving a common goal. Although the members of the team do not report directly to the team leader, they are expected to work harmoniously with the team leader for effective teamwork. The responsibilities that come with being a team leader may differ from organization to organization. However, it normally involves the responsibility of creating a supportive and communicative work environment.

Qualities of a team leader

For an individual to efficiently function as a team leader, they need to possess the following qualities:

  • Excellent communication skills for giving clear directions to team members and taking in feedback and complaints from others.
  • Exceptional organizational skills for planning effective strategies and developing clear objectives.
  • Respectful conduct to ensure that team members are encouraged and motivated to work toward achieving team goals.
  • Self-confidence to reassure team members of their position and authority within the team and organization.
  • Negotiation skills for resolving workplace conflicts while ensuring the best interests of any individual involved. These skills can come in handy for reaching an understanding when there is a disagreement between two or more team members.
