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.

What Are The Factors That Negatively Affect Performance At The Workplace

Employees are considered as the major strength of an organization. The way they think and the things that they go through affect their performance at the workplace. Nevertheless, employer expects the employees to perform well and this is what they are after all paid for. But at the same time, the employers must try to find and eradicate the factors that negatively affect the performance of their employees.

The Work Environment:
Many of the employers might consider the environment of the workplace okay, but at times too hot, too cold, inadequately ventilated or poorly lit work area can affect the performance of the employees unexpectedly. Also, employees often fail to perform up to their potential when the devices at the workplace persistently break down, the software is outdated, or computers are relatively slow. These factors make the personnel feel undervalued and consequently, they can’t work productively. It must be ensured by the employers that the investment in maintaining atmosphere as well as creating infrastructure at the office is thoughtfully up to the mark.

Problems Related To Co-Workers:
The mutual atmosphere at the workplace greatly affects the work performance of the employees. If the employees in the office talk less, are excessively competitive or have cold vibes for each other, the teamwork is bound to turn out as futile. On the other hand, studies have revealed that the companionship among the employees leads to better overall performance. Employers must ensure that there are no office gossips that not only waste a lot of time, but also create unconstructive working atmosphere.

Job Responsibilities And Skills:
Of course, every organization tries its best to recruit the employees who are best suited for the specified positions, but at times the right match is lacking. The talent and experience of the selected candidate might not be adequate or the way of his or her working does not go well with the beliefs and policies of the organization. Employers must avoid such situations and should have provision for complete training, assistance and appraisal to foster high performance among the employees.

Personal Problems:
To a large extent, the personal issues of the employees also have an effect on their performance at the workplace. The employers might not be able to do much in this aspect, but can always co-operate by giving some time to the employees to get out of the issues.

Factors affecting the performance of the employees at the workplace may vary and can be many. However, the collaborative efforts of employers and employees can be very effective to get over them.
