You are the new team lead or manager of an already established team.
And now what?
I am fortunate enough to be in a position of a team lead and in the past to be part of the HR Team of a vast non-profit IT team distributed all around Europe and I had been a main organizer for various non-profit events.
This year I organized a workshop event for 70 people and what they learned from running such initiatives is to not take things for granted, especially in dynamic fast-changing environments.
And isn’t the IT world as well such an environment?
In some places there are tens of companies fighting for IT specialist and yet managers make the same mistakes over and over again.
Even if the company is trying to enforce such policies, it is up to the managers to prove their loyalty to the team or lose the biggest talents.
Instead, listen to your people and use their straights!
What kind of manager/team lead are you?
