Leading an effective and productive development team involves knowing your team, understanding the skills they posses, their strengths, weaknesses experience. A key attribute is the ability to listen to others, respecting the views of every member of the team. Based on varied views and opinion, you make sound judgments with the sole objective of achieving the set objectives to attain the highest possible standard without jeopardizing team cohesion.
Having an I am always right attitude, not only disrespect members of your team, it also limits the team’s potential to innovate and flourish. Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown they say, but you can make that burden lighter by involving members of your team, giving everyone a sense of responsibility and accountability, respecting their views and acknowledging their contributions no matter how small they maybe.
