Most team leaders are promoted to temporary incompetence.
Being a good team member does not necessarily prepare one to become a good team leader. It is prudent for organizations to install a team development program to ensure that team members and team leaders are equipped to handle the roles.
Nothing demotivates a person more than a perceive incompetence. Promotion to team leadership requires different mindset and skills. An individual peak performer is responsible for his own growth. A team leader is responsible for the growth and productivity of his team members and accountable to the organization for results.
I encourage you to include in your team development program a two-day team leadership workshop and a follow-through coaching session. You expect the team leader to be responsible in building his team and be accountable to your organization for result. You must equip and empower him.
