It is important to know where you are going as an organization. A leader must develop a vision with a positive attitude and be ready to present it with energy.

Team members would be expected to provide support to the team leader as well as other team members. A good team leader will listen openly and constructively to their team members and customers. it is the team leaders job to get things done using all resources available to them, this will include organisation, giving instruction, co-ordinating and monitoring progress. As a team leader, I act within and on behalf of my team, constantly seeking to ensure the team is delivering the highest possible value back to the customer. In my branch, I have a widely varying skill level between different team members, I believe it is my role to understand when to use different management styles when leading these individuals to correspond with their abilities.
Roles of a leader A team leader is someone who provides direction, instructions and guidance to a group of individuals who can also be known as a team. An effective leader will know their team members strengths, weaknesses and motivations. Team leaders serve various roles in an organisation.

The coach could use the managing people model which will help adapt the way in which he approaches the learner this will then enable the coach to get the best out of him/her.

Individuals also communicate to express their needs and preferences and to ensure they are met. Discussing the options and choices available to the individual, allows them an informed choice with regards to their care.
