The idea of leading a team is not to be the same with everyone. One needs to be fair as a team leader but treat each team member differently based on their needs. A good team is a combination of a good leader, good colleagues and commitment to the team cause. Good team leaders do not play one against the other; they urge the team to a new high.
Insecure and incompetent team leaders are the worst thing for a good team. This type of leader ends up destroying the team.
A team leader’s energy will get sucked up by colleagues—the prima donnas at one end and people lacking in will at the other end. Both drain your energy in different ways. The most valuable resource a leader can give a team is his/her time. Make your time available and make it count.
