Team leadership white paper: The 5 traits of an effective leader

Effective team leadership image

How the power of five can make you a better team leader

When you’re trying to help your employees realise their potential, it’s worth learning what qualities are common to successful team leaders.

Insync’s new research has revealed five traits that are demonstrated by the majority of the highest-performing managers*.

The top performers in the survey:

  1. Provide direction
  2. Build good personal connections
  3. Support development
  4. Manage team dynamics
  5. Ensure execution

A closer look at these broad themes reveals excellent guidance for anyone who manages people.

For instance, under the category of ‘supported development’, good managers see every interaction with team members as an opportunity for recognition, constructive feedback or a discussion of what support will help employees to do their job well.

Being a better manager sometimes requires introspection, and Insync’s latest work encourages participants to rate their own leadership style and recognise their strengths in key areas.

By doing this, an effective team leader can connect team goals to the wider organisational strategy and actively support an organisation’s direction and strategy.

* Behaviours shown by the top-performing 25% of Insync’s benchmark database.
