Anyone who genuinely believes in the purpose of their team, as well as in the team itself, can succeed as a team leader.
Few team leaders step into the role with all the skills they need to manage and lead a team to success. Rather, team leaders tend to develop their skills after they take on the role.
One of the most important attributes of a team leader is a willingness to accept that they don’t need to know all the answers, make all the decisions, or assign all key tasks. The most effective team leaders recognise their reliance on the other team members, and don’t try to provide all of the answers.
Another key attribute of a successful team leader is flexibility. The team leader must be willing to adapt to change, and have a flexible attitude to the way in which the team will achieve its objectives and goals.
