What Determines Your Role As A Team Leader How Does Your Role Change
Your role as a team leader will change over time. Forget those images of people laying back on a sandy beach drinking margaritas from a class with a little umbrella in it. As your team grows so does your business and your role as team a leader should grow with it. An expansion of income means you can expect the number of tasks to grow along with that expansion.
You will soon realise that unless you outsource some of your work or begin to hire people to do tasks the rest of your team will suffer. So how do we know when it’s time to begin this next phase of your business.
From Your Role As A Team Leader To Business Owner
The video below contains some very valuable information when it comes to deciding at what point you’re change should occur. The style of presentation will also give you some idea of how your role as a team leader will change and what you will be expected to do as your change occurs and you’re training new recruits.
The video is part of a series released each Friday from the team over at SEO Moz and if you sign up to the newsletter you will be notified when a new video is available. The content is not meant to be provide a technical view point but more for the business owner and highlights what is required as part of your role as a team leader.
Although the video is quite long you only need to watch for a short while to see what I am alluding to when it comes to your changing role as a team leader. The transition to business owner is truly realised when you begin to employ or outsource tasks to other people. Although those visions of laying back and enjoying the fruits of your labour are a part of your dream there is quite a path before they become reality. We would all love to think we can achieve those visions sooner rather than later but there is a good deal of work to do in your role as a team leader beforehand.
Right now you might be filling all the roles discussed in the video. But at some time those roles are going to become more involved and require more of your time. For example if in your role as a team leader you are creating for your video marketing campaigns and you’re also running your website, this will soon be broken into smaller tasks that you will need to hand over to others as they become more complicated or time consuming.
From The Role Of A Team Leader To Retired Business Person
No doubt we can achieve our dreams if we build our business to the point where it becomes second nature and we have trained those who follow us to treat their role as one in the same. You must be reachable to any person along the chain that you are a part of or you become the weakest link. So don’t forget that when you are laying back sipping margaritas to always have your mobile phone and laptop under their own umbrella right next to you. Such is your role as a team leader.
