The Leader One of the most obvious and notable roles in a team is, of course, the leader. However, this role isn't just about bossing people around and telling them what to do all the time, it's also about providing guidance and helping people to speak up about their ideas, as well as providing support to all team members where possible. It's also about making sure that everyone is on track and that the team is running smoothly. Leaders may also have to deal with conflict from time to time and help workers to resolve their issues and settle their differences by communicating in an impartial manner with either individuals or groups. A leader should set up regular meetings to monitor everyone's progress as well as provide schedules, guidance on work-related issues, and specific tasks when possible. While leaders are often very busy, they should be able to set the time aside for any issues that may arise within the team. The Motivator When people are feeling a little down in the dumps, chances are that the last thing they'll want to do is crack on with work which is why it's always fantastic to have a motivator around to help keep people on-track and working. This doesn't necessarily mean taking over the role of the leader for the day, but rather being the person that brings spirit to the team and encourages team members to work their hardest and try their best during corporate activity days and other activities. In addition, the motivator is often the person that puts these activities into place to help keep everyone become up-beat and ready for the day ahead! They can help to provide advice to members who are struggling to concentrate and will be a constant source of inspiration to their team through their positivity.
