    Well its a great opportunity for you to be a team leader because every person who work as an fresher loves to work as an team leader whether he knows the work or not , but here your boss is offering you to work as an team leader so you have a chance to prove yourself that you are a good team leader and you can handle many employees at once , so you need to learn some things really helpful for you to be a perfect leader in the organisation so you should try this oppertunity because your destiny is calling you to catch her so you should run in full pace and catch the same because this is the opportunity that everybody doesnot get in the life as very few people get the opportunity that you are getting in your life so just grab the opportunity and feeel better for the same. If anyone get jealous by the same then let them jealous because its a profession and it is a common thing that happen everywhere.

    Hello Friend,

    Well, this is a great opportunity to rey your skills in the new arena. Team Leader is someone who knows how to get the work done from his team. He should have patience, multi-tasking ability, good communication skills and never ending quest for exellence. Not many people get this rare chance to become a Team Leader so you should grab this opportunity in open arms. All you need is little bit of confidence and self belief. Human potential is infinite and sky is the limit. So I would suggest you to try this new assignment and give your 100% to the job. You will be sucessful in the end.

    Bye,

    It is difficult to get this sort of offers. So when it has come to you, I will ask you to avail it. You should take it as a challenge not only to discover your own potentials, but to prove yourself to your boss. Keep it in mind that you are going to be the leader just for a week and not more than that. You need to prepare your mind accordingly. You need to think positive and trust your own capability. If you can successfully do it, you will find that your self confidence increasing substantially. I think you should accept the offer without any second thought. Follow the process the way your leader has been doing . Once you understand the flow of work, I believe things will be easier for you to manage. In case you need any help, you will be having your boss ready to help you. So avail the opportunity and give your best. My best wishes are with you. Just be positive!

    Hi Dear,

    We are all products of the choices we make - whether we want to be the victim or the hero of our story.


    By God's grace you have been gifted with a wonderful opportunity by your team leader and you should try your best to live up to his expectations. Instead of being confused and wasting your time in unnecessary thinking, you must shrug off self-doubts and discouragement and strive hard to prove your worth by grabbing this extremely rewarding opportunity.

    Now, when you take up this important responsibility, be very patient, humble, clear with your plans and knowledge of the project and be motivated by the moral imperative of respecting fellow human beings and seeing people not as a means but as an end in themselves.

    Wish you luck!
    Ritz

    Dear Aspirant,
    This is a good opportunity for you to prove your capabilities.
    Do not let is go from your hand. Your boss have not chosen you in random, he thinks that you are capable for this duty/post.

    You are feeling that you are not ready for this post is because you have not done that before. But you should also know that everything have a first time.

    You should shrug yourself from the sense of self-doubt and discouragement.

    You need to be confident and place your ideas with details infornt of your team.

    You can also produce your idea and details to your boss before implication.

    I do agree that your not ready for the position of being a team leader but give it a try for which can be a wonderful opportunity for establishing yourself in the company.. its good that your boss has recognized you a young talent among very few members so its like a trainee period as an team leader.. generally a leader is a learner firstly so its time to learn leadership skills from your seniors.. now that your boss has given you the responsibility of taking the charge of the team then take and grab the opportunity with all the interest and be duty bound at work.. right now you are given the post of interim team leader so nothing much you can do to influence your team with your policy so its important that you have a go and smooth ride as team leader its only about learning how to lead a team ..so you take this period as probation period take some leadership skills and suggestion and what it takes to be a leader from your boss, seniors in the company so that you get some experience .. i feel that you may not be experienced at the position given to you but giving a try you will definitely find mistakes at your functioning and what are the special qualities and skills for leading a project team so never disappoint the boss as he has felt the zeal and spark in you so its very important that you sharpen the skills.. not much is to be done but experience the joy of being a leader for few days.. experience is the only way and the path you learn..

    so it depends on how you react as an new position is given to no matter how long you need to act according to situations and prevailing conditions.. leaders are not born fortnight so it takes some years of about 2 years to actually adopt all the measures and policy making decision to nurture yourself as a team leader..take inspiration from others and read some books based on leaders and getting a feeling of a leader and having the spirit is what should be important to you in this point of time.. things don't come so easily to an conclusion..for a task to complete as head personal you should always have the attitude and feeling that you can do it.. a can do attitude is what you should adopt from right now itself immediately.. behave as normal as you were act according to what situation demands being the same at approach and personality is not what you should depend upon.. so to become successful you need to have the feeling that you would be successful be confident and be happy as i feel your lucky that you have got recognition by boss.. there are people who work so hard but even they are denied in some companies because of some office bound politics and lobbying i am in fact very happy that you are being chosen as team leader for a few days so don't wait for something to happen remind and recollect yourself as a team member and recollect what all instructions you have received from your team leader and follow his path of managing team members in project management.. its not about copying things but to learn from others its the best part of gaining knowledge and managerial skills is what you should learn at the earliest as possible all the best i wish you experience as team leader gives you all the best abilities..

    Dear your boss is thinking you better right now for future because he know that you have an ability to manage and lead the team well that is why you deserve better for the same post according to the boss and you should take advantage of this moment because when your boss trusting in you that means you are going to get some more responsibilities and duties in future and you are going to be the next face of the branch according to your boss that is why understand the situation and show that you are the best in entire office who can lead, who can manage and who can give better response and results to the company

    You should say yes to your boss for a week to be a leader of the team that is formed of 10 members in office premises and trust in yourself that you can do better than that leader who is going to leave for some days and show your strength and efficiency that you can do better than him and try to find something to do that has never done in company and no leader did that before and for that you should take a task which is going to be a new in your office and research more on that project and try your best efforts to get more in depth knowledge about that particular topic then you will get more ideas and views about to complete that project and implement that in your way and also take feedback and suggestions of all employees regarding that project because they may have some better ideas in that case so you should welcome all opinions and add if you think better to complete project and also take help from your boss in this case so they will guide you and you can really do better than before and then your boss will make you future leader

    All the best
