    How to tell my boss that I want to be the team leader this time as I am quite confident now?

    I am working in a private firm. In the first 2 years of my job, I was unsure about myself and so was not confident about being a team leader. But now I am quite confident about the same and want to talk to my boss about it. How should I tell my boss regarding it as I really want to lead now in one of the projects?

    Hi Dear,

    As the saying goes - Actions speak louder than words, likewise your attitude and work should reflect your confidence and not your words. First prove your worth in the eyes of your boss and then when your boss appreciates you and your quality work, grab the opportunity to talk about your desire to lead a project.

    In fact, plan your work. For about a month put in your best efforts to showcase your abilities and highlight your skills by doing quality work. Then after you thing you have made a position for yourself as an extraordinary performer in the team and have raised your bar in the eyes of your reporting manager, then at a suitable time, talk to your boss in a mature and responsible way that you would like to assist him by leading a project.

    If you follow a planned footstep, I am sure you would be able to succeed in your desire.

    Thanks.

    If you like to be a team leader then you should give the good consistent performance from your side and at the time of perfeomance evaluation you can tell to your boss that you want to be a team leader then what will be the procedure for the same .
    After that boss will say the things that are require for you to get the position, if from his side you get the positive response for your performance then it will be the positive sign for you.
    You need to go to the HR and also ask for the same to them if they tell you any of the procedure then it will be ok.

    Dear Aspirant,

    Congratulations for having confident for being a team leader.You can very well ask your boss to make you a team leader,if you deserve for it ,fulfilling all the criteria.You should know the basis on which one is nominated for team leader & if you fulfill it,definitely you should request your boss for the same.


    One more thing to add here,if you deserve for the team leader,you may automatically be nominated for the team leader & if you are over looked by the management/boss,then you should claim for it.Second thing,if you donít deserve for team leader,you can not be nominated for the same as it may rise many objection by your colleagues.So it is better to wait ,watch & see the matter & situation.


    Thanks & good luck.

    Hello Friend,

    Well, if you are confident of your potential of being a team leader then you should talk to your boss immediately and tell him your desire. If your boss thinks this is the right moment for you to handle team leader position then you will surely give you the post. But it all depends on your boss. You have to rely on his judgements and intuition. I would suggest you to focus more on toyr work rather than on your derie to become team leader. Your performance will be very crucial to be eligible for a team leader post. You have to win that team leader postition based on your performance so you should work hard and finish your work on priority wise. Wish you all the best.

    Bye,

    If you want to become team leader in your company for any specific project then you should make yourself eligible for that first that you should not need to say anything to your boss because your boss is better than you and experienced and also know that who is the best among all employees and who can lead in which project so you should not go to your boss and to say that you wants to be the team leader and may be that your boss took it wrong and understand that you are over confident about something that is not good for you so think about it first then face further situation

    If you have got any big task or responsibility then you should concentrate on that first because that is your duty and complete that on time before the deadline and if you see that you have done everything properly then go to the boss and show your work and have a conversation with your boss in that have to ask for the views of your boss about your work and get their feedback and if you have done then your boss will praise you and support you on that time then you should say that sir if you do not mind then may I ask you a question so your boss will allow you then you should ask that sir I am thinking that you will make me leader for any upcoming projects of the company because I am sure about my efficiency and I will complete my project on time and lead the team very well so your boss will understand your demand in the company and give you more duties and when they will find any good project then they will give you task and take your knowledge as testing

    If you get any duty or leadership of the project then you should do your best to complete that on time or before the time by making no mistake in that so your boss will get more duties for you and you will be the best leader

    All the best

    Since you are quite confident about being the team leader you can talk to the boss about it.

    You should tell the boss regarding it but not directly approaching and asking but follow the below procedure :


    • You need to approach the boss with all the achievements that you have in the past and present.

    • You need to take all the required certificates which shows your leader ship qualities.

    • If possible try to achieve the success in the current project if you are working with any new project now because you can ask him that with this success.

    So, achieve the required credentials and then approach the boss then definitely you can be the TEAM LEADER.
