One of the best things you have especially when you are at your workplace, is that you should have excellent team management skills, and here are those according to Cosmitto:
- Make sure that you establish expectations from the beginning of you being a team but make sure that you should not set very high expectations that no one can reach those expectations. Make sure that you are expecting what your team can make and help them improve, an expectation that will make your team grow and have successful work. And make sure that you respect your teammates if you want to be respected. Make sure that you see them as a family who should be taught and who will also help you grow, make sure that you give and take. Give them time to learn from your words and actions, take what their insights about you are, and make sure that you will not get mad and whatever they are going to say must be heard, and you should learn from that if you want them to learn from you also. It is not always about you giving them instructions and telling them what is wrong, and you should also be open to your mistakes.
- Make sure that you build connections and trust with your teammates. If there is something wrong, make sure to tell them and if they seek help or idea to make things work, make sure that you accept it and make sure to be honest about what is going on in your work/project because you are working as a team, they have the rights to know what is going on. You have the right to let them tell you what is going on, positively or negatively. You should not be mad about that, and you should accept that sometimes you might encounter negative things about your work, and you should be open to that and help reach out to make things successful until the end.
- Make sure that you split the problems from work and the outside and tell them that whatever is happening on the work should remain only. If there are problems outside the work, make sure that they will not bring it work because it is a different matter, and there is a time and space for that.
- Always motivate each other positively, do not take things negatively. Make sure that you give them words positively and do not be angry all the time. Make sure to talk calmly and smoothly to your teammates so they will not take it as a bad thing for you. Make sure to let them understand what you want to say and what you want to happen. If you are open to them, they will understand you and take your words; you need to build trust, honesty, and friendship.
