I have experienced two different types of leadership when working on teams. The first type of leader I encountered was an individual who provided clear direction and expectations for our project as well as timely feedback throughout its completion. This leader would give us specific tasks to complete each week as well as outline deadlines for completion so that we did not fall behind schedule. Additionally, this person regularly checked in with us regarding our progress towards meeting these goals which helped keep everyone motivated throughout the process. This type of leadership created an atmosphere where everyone felt valued, involved and productive which ultimately led our team to success on several projects we worked together on over the course of a few years.
Overall, effective leaders use both tangible resources like setting expectations and providing feedback along with intangible things such as building trust, establishing relationships between teammates, celebrating successes collectively etc.,to ensure that both short term objectives are met efficiently while longer term benefits (like creating cohesive teams) can be achieved down the line too if managed properly from at start itself .
