How to be a Team Leader

The Definition of A Team Leader is: someone who provides guidance, instruction, direction and leadership to a group of other individuals (the team) for the purpose of achieving a key result or group of aligned results.

If you want to be a leader, you should emulate the behaviour you want your team to follow. Actively listen to your team members, repeat back to them so they know you understand them. Try some team building activities to keep everyone together on the same team!

How to start a New Career in the New Year #2013


How to start off a New Career in the New Year

Hello Everyone! Happy New Year!

Take 2013 to be the year you advance your career. You can either advance internally, or externally if you find there is nowhere to go in terms of growth where you are. Start with trying to move internally first, apply to jobs in other departments to show interest, speak to HR about potential roles coming up, you have to put yourself out there. Make sure you have an updated resume. Try a visual resume just for fun. You have to spend time everyday doing something to help your career move forward. Schedule time in your calendar if you find it’s tough to carve out time during the day.

You can take self-training on-line if your company doesn’t offer paid training, or check with your local Collage or University to see what they offer.

You may even meet some interesting people who can help you with your new career.
