The leader often works within the team, as a member, carrying out the same roles but with the additional ‘leader’ responsibilities – as opposed to higher level management which often has a separate job role altogether.
Team Leader Responsibility
In order for our team to function successfully, the team leader also motivates the team to “use their knowledge and skills to achieve the shared goals”. When the IBM team leader motivates a team, group members can function in a goal oriented manner. A “team leader” is also someone who has the capability to drive performance within a group of people. Our team leaders utilize their expertise, peers, influence, and/or creativeness to formulate an effective team.
