Qualities Of A Good Team Leader

Since whenever the concept of a group, herd or team has existed, the requirement of a leader or head has been there too. A leader or a head is an entity that holds the lead of the team and guides it through all the activities carried out by it. The selection of a leader of a team depends on the qualities displayed by a person, while functioning within a team and the abilities of the person to handle the team in a larger manner. There are certain qualities, which help anyone figure out who, or rather what should a team leader be.

Traits Of Effective Team Leadership

  • One of the most important aspects or requirements is to be competent at the kinds of tasks that are carried out in a team. If a person is not the best or one of the best at the activities carried out, he or she will hardly have the right to correct or reprimand other people when at fault.
  • When it comes to the leader of a team, it is very important that the person is able to keep the team working harmoniously together. The competence of a team and its efficiency depends on its ability to produce good work together, and a lot of this ability, depends on that of a leader of the team.
  • Some of the personal qualities required on the part of a leader are:

o    A good Team leader should have excellent communication skills and know how to put their thoughts across, in team, in order to get work done in a team
o    The ability to remain cool and composed in times of crisis and tension. This depicts the ability of the leader to handle the stress of the situation and the team
o    The ability to take responsibilities for one’s actions is very difficult, especially in case one’s job is on the lone. In such situations, a person who handles situations well, takes responsibilities and does not shirk can be called a good team leader.
o    When working in a team, even minor amounts of appreciation can do wonders to the team’s morale and motivations levels and increase the desire to give better results.
o    A good team leader should know how to praise as well criticize. This way, one not only feels like paying heed to the instructions of a leader, but the general atmosphere of the team remains good as well.

These are mere outlines of the requirements of an ideal team leader, but the presence of these, for starters, can always show signs of success as one.

Tips For Avoiding Work At Home Scams

Tips-For-Avoiding-Work-At-Home-Scams-PIMany of us really get excited on the prospects of working at home and making money.  Indeed there is a valid point in that.

Temptations are high when we come across those alluring advertisements of earning from within our homes but we must be able to smell the rat. Following tips will help you identify when there is something fishy.

Tips For Avoiding Work At Home Scams

  • If in a work at home ad, a company demands you to pay in the name of providing booklets, kits, memberships in cooperative association or for anything else, it is strong signal that something is out of order. The logic is simple; it is you who is going to work and you should be paid rather you paying the company.
  • Don’t be deceived by promises of extraordinarily high salary unless there are sound logical reasons to believe them. All that glitters is not gold and such offers are generally too good to be true.
  • You must do your homework by gathering as much information about the company as you can. You must enquire on certain aspects such as what is exact nature of job you will be assigned, who will be paying you, will you be paid on commission, will there be any expenses on your part, etc. You can go a step ahead and contact the competent authority to know if in the past there has been any complaint against the company.

Remember, prevention is better than cure. Keeping all these aspects in mind, you can make sure that you do not fall in the trap set by certain notorious entities to make quick bucks.  Such fraudsters make money with the help of bulk advertising and run away before any legal action can be taken. There needs to be awareness and in case you have ever been duped in such manner, it is better to break silence and, complain against such wrongdoings.
