The role of a Team Leader is to take charge of a team as well as provide support and coaching to staff members working underneath them.

You will need to create a trusting environment within your team, ensuring that communication is clear, and use creative thinking to assist in finding solutions.

You will oversee any projects and other business initiatives, while at the same time will need to motivate and inspire the team to meet the objectives set out.

Maintaining a healthy working environment within the team is essential, which includes recognising and celebrating good performances, as well as identifying problems early and coming up with necessary solutions.

The role of a Team Leader is suited to somebody that is creative, boasts excellent communication skills and is regarded as a ‘people’s person’.
