    Working in a software company, my boss expects me to be a good team leader

    I am working in a software company. My boss likes me a lot and now wants me to be the team leader in one of the projects. But I have never, in my life, acted as a team leader. Now I am afraid that I might not be able to live upto his expectations. How to deal with such a situation?

    Hi aspirant

    If you want to succeed in life and your career, you should not be afraid of taking up any such responsibility. And always make sure that you maintain good relations with your boss and never disappoint him. You should definitely please your boss in this matter and not displease him. You should take up this responsibility of the team leader and should be confident enough to carry it out with success.

    To be a good team leader you need to have good communication skills and the ability to persuade your team members to do as you say. You should be able to take the right decisions for your team's success and should be able to instill team spirit in your team members. You should definitely be able to guide your team in the right direction and should set an example for them so that they look upto you. If you have all the qualities then you will definitely be a good team leader and will surely live upto the expectations of your boss.

    Good luck and I am sure you can do this. Thanks

    You are lucky that your boss have a good tuning with you and thus backs you to work as a team leader.

    This is opportunity for you to take further step in your career, as this will show your leadership skills.

    No one is born leader and every one has to face such situation in their life and the successful people are those who are able to keep confidence in

    themselves and thus complete there duty successfully.

    You know your work just you need a little bit confidence in yourself that you can complete the task given to you.

    If you are afraid of the completion of the project you can break your targets in small parts that can be completed in a specific time thus by managing

    things properly you will be able to accomplish the task.

    As you have said that you have a big support of your boss you can also take some tips from your boss regarding proper management of the team.

    He will definitely help you.

    And keep one thing in mind that there is always a first time and no one is borne experienced.
