Team Leadership Jonathan Poland

Team leadership involves guiding and representing a team, using influence rather than authority. In many cases, a team leader is delegated authority by a team manager who remains accountable. Effective team leadership requires strong communication and social skills, as well as expertise in the relevant domain. For example, a team leader who is not knowledgeable about coding would have difficulty leading a team of software developers. To earn the respect of their team, a leader must be skilled and knowledgeable in their field. The following are common team leadership skills.
