It’s your team. Take the hits and share the glory. People for the most part want someone or something to follow. Whether it’s an ideal or an individual whom they believe in. People will respond much more favorably if they know you have their backs. You need to make your team feel like they are part of the bigger picture… that what they do matters. This is not always easy but find ways to engage. Part of taking responsibility is showing confidence in your team and self. Emotional Intelligence is a big part of this! Stay in control and stay calm. Think things through. Lead by example. A confident team will always outperform the less confident.
