    Our team leader is leaving the project midway

    I am working in a private firm. We are a team of 10 members working on a particular project. Our team has some major family problem and thus is thinking of taking a long leave. In this way he is going to leave the project in midway and he intends to make me the new team leader. I am really afraid now of shouldering such a big responsibility. What to do in such a situation?

    Ask yourself if you won't be able to lead team now than when you will be able to do.

    It will be someday that you will have to lead a team in future if not now than also you will face the same problem.

    Until and unless you will give yourself a chance to prove you will never be able to build confidence in yourself.

    So instead of getting afraid it would be much better that you take it as a challenge, take this as an opportunity to prove yourself in front of your boss

    As this is the only way by which you can move forward in your career.

    If you will wait than some other will grab the opportunity, and it is possible that you might regret it in future.

    As you a team of 10 members and the current leader has chosen you than he might have seen something in you which is not in others due to which he

    has given you this responsibility.

    So if he can show confidence on you than why can't you show the same in yourself.

    hello,
    its a good opportunity to enhance your skills and go ahead for the teamleader.a good team leader is one who guides his team in a right way with lot of benefits.and the group should be in contact with each other and should maintain good coordination for a good success.
    there are many do's and dont's for a team leader to be followed and know how your ex team leader had lead the team and know some tips from him and the work culture from him and how to coordinate with the team and know how to deal with the situation when it is in out of our hands.
    clarify your doubts as many as possible and be a good team leader and all the best.
    thank you..............
