In an ideal world, every member of your team understands their role and responsibilities and performs their duties flawlessly. Your role as a team leader is to help your team members develop and be successful. It is essential to the success of your team that you not only set standards and goals for team members, but also that you have the ability to hold them accountable for their performance.
Although developing consensus surrounding performance standards and responsibilities from your team members is difficult, your ability to develop goals and standards collaboratively ensures commitment. As a result, team members agree to the process and are dedicated to its success.
