Business owners need to be able to properly lead their business team to success through their example and verbal cues. It is not enough in the business world to be able to lead by your own example alone. You could have the best character in the world and still fall flat on your face when it comes to running a business team. You need to be as audible as possible so your team knows what to do at every turn in your plan.
One of the biggest problems that leaders face is having utter and incomplete lack of faith for their team. A leader should actually let his team do what they are paid to do. A team leader has a great understanding of what needs to be done in order to achieve the goals necessary to complete a project. A leader has to be able to give clear instructions to his/her team so they can work effectively on it as well. If the leader just shuts up and tries to do everything themselves the project will fail. An effective team leader needs to be able to use all the team member’s skills to accomplish their goals. A group is still better than one mad man’s way of getting something done.
The team leader could be the best employee any business has ever had, but it will mean nothing if there is no communication. The leader cannot spell everything out for the team. If he/she does gives too much instruction then it will take too long to produce results. The leader needs to give instructions and tell the team what he expects and the time he expects it by and have faith a little faith. A very good leader will see any short comings before they happen and prepare for them before they become a major problem.
