Leading Teams

In their book, The Wisdom of Teams, Jon Katzenbach and Douglas Smith define a team as “a small number of people with complementary skills who are committed to a common purpose, performance goals, and approach for which they hold themselves mutually accountable.” Strong teams leverage the diverse perspectives, experiences, skills, creativity, and problem-solving approaches of their members to tackle challenges, produce results, and create a sense of satisfaction and achievement among their members. In today’s world, whether teams are small or large, good teamwork is essential for the success of businesses and organizations.

. Team leaders are essential to set goals and objectives, provide guidance and direction, ensure that team members understand and fulfill their roles, set the tone and pace for teamwork, monitor progress, resolve conflicts, and maintain high morale so that team members are motivated to perform well, as well as ensure they have the necessary resources to do so. In addition, team leaders need to be aware of the stages of team development and how they can best support the team through these stages.
