Leading your team effectively can sometimes seem like an overwhelming task in addition to your objectives and tasks.

Keep in mind the following:

1. Feedback – Don’t wait for the annual formal review process.  Utilize regular interactions for continuous feedback.  Also make sure the feedback is clear, honest and constructive.

2. Inspire – Go big on meaning and vision.  Inspire people with your vision, set challenging goals and articulate  a clear purpose.

3. Listen – Don’t just talk.  Your team has ideas about generating solutions to on-going issues and problems.  Enlist their input and be open to new thoughts.
