Managing Teams

Not even the most gifted corporate executive can operate in a vacuum. You can accomplish success in business only through committed teamwork that’s rooted in mutual respect and cooperation. Managing a team means understanding and accepting the strengths, weaknesses and personality quirks of your employees and blending them into a cohesive unit.

Natural-born leaders are the exception to the rule. The majority of the corporate trendsetters who have left their imprints across the business landscape learned through trial and error how to manage teams. In fact, getAbstract’s summary library includes sage advice from the legendary figures who grasped both the foundational principles and the nuances of team leadership.

Create a Vision

Effective team leadership begins with creating a vision, then convincing your people that it is possible to achieve it. Great leaders are extraordinary salespeople. The unshakeable belief they have in themselves and their abilities becomes contagious and unifies their teams in the pursuit of a common goal. Managers and employees alike can derive exceptional benefit from exploring getAbstract’s library and learning best practices for team management.

Execute Your Plan

In rare instances, those who develop great ideas do not have to execute them. But in most cases, the executive with the vision is also responsible for its implementation. getAbstract’s summaries are an excellent source for understanding the delegation of tasks and the proper methods for monitoring your team’s progress. Ambitious initiatives rarely unfold flawlessly, so you’ll also be prepared to deal with unexpected setbacks and take the necessary corrective actions.
