Team Building: Skills for Leader Building teams leadership skills is a great challenge today. The art of building a team is similar to bringing a number of wild horses together and getting them to work together to pull a tremendous load all in the same direction. The key is that they are all pulling together in the same direction.

 Leadership Skill#1: Everyone should work in the same direction: Certainly it would do no good if  they  were working hard but pulling in different directions. So you must first truly understand what  your  goal is. It could be as simple in that you have a number of tasks to perform, and each  member gets  along with the other members and appreciates each team member for what they are  doing for the  team. In a perfect world they come to the aid of any team member that is  experiencing a hardship  on any particular day or time.

Leadership Skill#2: The common goal: The common goal, or the reason you create must be bigger  than any one individual. If they don't understand it, or it does not seem important to them, you are  wasting your time. With the right motivation, they will perform with or without you present.

 Leadership Skill#3:  Never tell a lie: Never ever say something that is not true. Maintain your trust.  

Leadership Skill#4:  Get to know your staff: Do things together. Celebrate birthdays or special  occasions in the work environment together. Take time to celebrate the victories of success.      

Leadership Skill#5:  Be fair and consistent: They will see right through you if you are not.
