Easing pressure on team

When left to their own devices teams can become highly stressed, limiting productivity, stifling creativity and eradicating the fun that work can bring.

Your new strengths and abilities

It is possible for the leader to create team working environment by:

  • Having clearly defined roles.
  • Being clear and articulate about what is needed and how success is to be judged.
  • Empowering team members to do what they do best without interference.
  • Listening to suggestions from all team members, regardless of hierarchy.
  • Able to identify risks and pressure points in any proposed project plan so that remedial action can be taken in a timely fashion.
  • Creating a culture of openness so that problems are discussed early rather than at the eleventh hour.
  • Remaining emotionally intelligent at all times
  • Being prepared to share the load and take prompt decisions when something needs to be fixed quickly.
  • Maintaining a sense of fun throughout. Moodiness by the leader can spread like the mood of a queen bee in her hive.
  • Show appreciation for a job well done. Become adept at providing feedback.
