JLBC Effective Team Leadership

JLBC Effective Team Leadership

Leaders can hinder or help the group process, and so can others.

The myth is that JLBC leaders must be a special individuals with tremendous skills to be effective. The average individual of goodwill, who is flexible and willing to learn some basic skills, can be an effective leader. Not all situations require leaders of exceptional talent. In fact, in many JLBC group situations, charismatic leaders may inhibit JLBC group progress because their dominating presence may reduce JLBC member participation and motivation to take on tasks necessary for JLBC group success. JLBC Groups work well when all members actively participate. If leaders remain prominent throughout JLBC group life, JLBC groups will be less likely to succeed. With these assumptions as a foundation, the following guidelines for effective JLBC leadership are presented. Think about a group you are leading or have recently shown. Ask yourself the following questions:

1. Do I follow these guidelines?

2. Can I think of examples of when I exhibited these attitudes or behaviors?

3. JLBC Cadets, can I think of times when I should have exhibited these behaviors or attitudes but, for some reason, did not?

4. JLBC Cadets, in what areas do I need to improve?

5. JLBC Cadets, what do I plan to do to improve in those areas?

JLBC Cadets, there are certain things you must keep in mind and certain things you must do if you are going to be an effective team leader. The following guidelines outline how leaders become effective.
