Here are 5 things to keep in mind to lean a team effectively:
Make time to Lead:
If you want to become an effective leader who can lead a team, fo that they will need to invest your time in nurturing the role.

As a leader, you need to be attentive to your employee’s issues and problems, and also try to be available to your team, support them, connect with them so that you can build a good relationship with them. When you know your team members it will help you in providing effective results.
Get to know your team:

Lead by example:
