Team leader strengths and weaknesses


Team leader behaviors are about being an “alpha executive” (to lead, encourage, support and guide his/her people, but not to reign over them), so it is very important to understand if the person who is to be assigned to this role is really capable of doing this serious job. In order to figure out if a candidate is competent enough to be the leader, we recommend you to check him/her for possessing some of the following strengths:

  • Ability to establish effective contacts with personalities of various characters;
  • Adequate perception of authority (real leader NEVER puts himself above the rest of the team);
  • Wish and skill to continually guide, help, motivate and support others;
  • Knowledge of psychology to resolve interpersonal troubles;
  • Skills on consensual decision-making (ability to consider many points of view to compromise);
  • High level of self-organization and responsibility;
  • Ability to consider risks reasonably;

Some of weaknesses to avoid:

  • Favoritism;
  • Bad listener (fails to understand opinions, needs or setup of other team members);
  • Bad speaker (fails to communicate his position or vision to the team);
  • Lack of skill to provide encouragement or judgment to the team;
  • Lack of skill to guide and help the team (instead of giving them some strict directives);
  • Applying same approaches to everyone in the team (inability to recognize individualities of the team members);
  • Lack of the leader’s problem solving skills;

Team leader problems can be detected through tracking if level of productivity in the team trends to decline. This may identify various inefficiencies in team leadership, so you need to investigate this. For tracking matters of work progress and productivity, you can use VIP Task Manager.
