Team leadership is hard [duh]. Teaching it to our trainees is even tougher. When you work in a team of true experts with established implicit communication, things just flow--giving the the team leader the impression that they actually know what the hell they are doing. The mark of a good team leader is how they handle a less than ideal team. I found a true master to interview on the topic of team leadership--friend of the show, Cliff Reid.
* Authoritative vs. empowering
* Be Aware that many of us are helped or hurt by implicit biases
