1. Your team is there to help you realize a vision you have for yourself, and your career. The responsibility for creating this vision is up to you! You are your team leader.
"Some teams are building teams, while others are support teams."
2. Don't rely on emotional support from someone you are meant to build your project with! Keeping everyone in their lane of expertise will bring a better outcome for everyone involved.
3. Those in your inner circle will be the ones you take your life cues from. Choose wisely!
4. Show appreciation for your team. Thank them often for their hard word and support! We like to send gifts and cards from time to time, and buy lunch or coffee. Showing gratitude in small ways will keep your team motivated.
