    Not being able to take the correct decisions as a team leader

    I am working in a software company. I am the team leader of one of the projects. I was unable to take the correct decisions for my team on several occasions due to which our team had to suffer. Even our boss is very angry with us. How to overcome this situation so that everything becomes right?

    Hello,

    As a team leader decision making is a very very crucial aspect of project execution.
    You should need to change your strategy. Just write down the things need to execute
    during project and do it accordingly. One task at a time. you don't have be a multi-tasker
    to do all thing in one go just follow work on pririty basis and never loose your temper.

    Bye,

    Hello Aspirant,

    Decision making is very important aspects in professional career.It requires information,data,aim,knowledge to take decision on any matter.

    In order to take good decision on any matter,you can have meeting with all your members & discuss the issue.Take their view about the decision to be taken.Analyse their view & then finally take one decision as to the matter.You should have clear idea for what you have to take decision.

    Have patience & take help from your boss & efficient senior colleagues.Alone can not be done many things.if you try to analyse about what you have to do & from what.What are things required to achieve your target,if you know it,you can take decision in any matter.

    So be trying.Every thing will be alright.

    Good luck.

    hi
    this is to inform you that nobody is born perfect, mistakes are a part of one's life. there are several ocassions and time in each one's lives, in which certain wrong decisions are taken by the people. but you dont need to get disheartened. but try learning from your mistakes and never repeat them. if you can learn from your mistakes, this is the best thing one can do.
    therefore, dont take any kind of tension, just focus on your future and try not repeating the same mistake again

    Hi aspirant

    You should not be dejected that you made your mistake rather you should take this incident in a positive sort of way. Failures are the pillars to success as you know and you should follow this to be successful in your career. You should learn a lesson from your previous mistakes and should not take this in a negative way. I am sure that you have the calibre and you will surely do well as a team leader .

    You should make it a point that you won't repeat the same mistake again and then I am sure you will be able to take the right decisions for your team. Then they will feel proud of you as their team leader and will all look upto you. You should not get disheartened just because your team had to suffer due to your mistake but should make sure that your team comes out aqs a winner the next time. Then your boss will also be proud of you.

    I hope that you understand my point. Good luck

    Everyone is a human being and it is quite natural for the human beings to make mistakes.But after doing the mistakes,what will be the action or the response of a human being determines actually what is the real trait of a human being.If one learns from the mistakes and strive hard from then on to improve on the weak areas and achieve success,he/she is sure to achieve success.This is the real nature of a successful person in this competitive world.

    The professional world is highly competitive.There is very little space to commit mistakes.This is because once you do some mistake,your rival is waiting to capture that opportunity and hold the market.Hence,you have to quickly learn from the mistakes you do and work hard to rectify it and not repeat it again.Also remember that this process of rectifying and improving should be fast enough to cope up with the pace of the world.

    It is quite natural for your boss to get angry if you repeat the same mistake again and again.Moreover,you are the team leader so the expectation level from you is more as well as the entire functioning of your team is dependent on you.So,if you are underperforming the entire has to get a setback and the project that your team is dealing with has to suffer.

    -Firstly,analyze the mistakes that you have done.
    -Try to chalk out the weak points in you.
    -Work upon those weak areas.
    -Be a bit careful when such circumstances again arise.
    -Make sure you do not repeat the same mistake.
    -Try to involve the entire team in whatever decision you take.
    -This will help you in getting the suggestion and the outcome of your decision.
    -Be focused and determined,you will surely overcome this problem.
