• What traits do they possess?
Dr. Stephen Covey says, "If you want to build trust, you have to start by being trustworthy."
"The leaders who work most effectively, it seems to me, never say "I." And that's not because they have trained themselves not to say "I." They don't think "I." They think "we"; they think "team." They understand their job to be to make the team function. They accept responsibility and don't sidestep it, but "we" gets the credit…. This is what creates trust, what enables you to get the task done." - Peter Drucker
Be a Role Model and Not the Boss:
Team leaders do not control others but build good relationships with their followers to get a job done quickly and neatly.
The leaders have to communicate well in order to avoid any misunderstandings between their teammates or any conflict.
Just and Impartial:
The leader must not be bias and must be fair to everyone- everyone gets an equal chance.
Taking Responsibility and Ownership:
They must be responsible for their group members and take ownership for the team.
Responds well to change:
Knows how to react when the situation suddenly takes a turn for the worse.
Makes good decisions:
Decisions that are made do not do any harm to the leader nor the group itself.
Uses power wisely:
They do not abuse their position as a leader but in actual fact takes care of everyone in the group.
• How do you think a good leader manages crisis under stressful situations?
They manage it under good leadership and takes all of their team members as their responsibility.
First, they identify the problem and then they keep a cool head. They solve the root of the problem and then lead the others out of the difficult situation.
They do not just jump into conclusions and blame someone. They checked if the person had really done it and then ask the person is he/she had really done those things.
