Do you like your team to be successful?
If you are a team leader, a project manager, a department manager, or a business leader, and you go home after work knowing that you or your team could be doing better, then this is for you!
If you realize that your team is trying hard to focus and stick to decisions, and they debate actions and miss import goals or deadlines, then something has to change.
This is what has to change.
To be a leader means leading a team to success. To be able to do that you need to understand what is going on. You’ll want to decide to recalibrate your position, get an orientation where you are, and restructure your role as a leader from the ground up.
Are you leading your team, or are you still the best player on your team?
The role of a leader
Team leaders and department managers like to have a successful teams. They want to ensure that their team reaches the expected goal. That is why they want to help their team as much as they can. Their desire to help is typically born out of the following four desires.
- They wish that the team had the same sense of urgency as they do as their manager.
- They want the people to develop plans that secure the target.
- They prefer more competent and experienced people to solve the problems.
- They wish that the results would show faster.
However, when the manager gets involved in the planning, starts developing the solutions and actions their people need to take, they only bring in their own perspective. They can only know how they would do the plan, how they would solve the problem, and which actions they would take, if they were working with these tasks themselves.
In this case these managers are not leading their people. Instead they are managing the tasks and actions the people should take.
When they get involved like this, they are not leaders, they are managers.
If you don’t know what you did to achieve the results, you might as well admit you got lucky.
