1. Get to know, trust, and appreciate your team.
To help your project team reach their full potential, you first have to get to know your team. When you know their strengths and what motivates them, it is easier for you to match them with the right tasks to successfully accomplish the project. When you have matched your team members with their tasks based on their skills, then you can have full confidence that they can successfully complete the project. You can then encourage your team to follow your example and get to know each other, learn how to communicate with each other and build trust in each other as well. Another important way to lead by example is to show appreciation by giving positive feedback regularly. A simple thank you can make a big difference and make your team feel recognized and appreciated. When your team feels that they are recognized, they will work even harder to excel in their jobs, which will benefit you, the team, and ultimately the company.
