Developing leadership skills can be easy if you concentrate on being a good leader to yourself first. Those with good leadership skills aren’t perfect and still make mistakes like everyone else. The difference is that good leaders learn from their mistakes and stay committed to the goals they set, inspiring others as they go.
Like leadership, teamwork is a method that aligns the employee mindset in a cooperative manner, toward a specific business purpose. The right mix of skill, motivation and ability to manage a project without compromising its quality determines team effectiveness. Team building is a process that develops cooperation and teamwork within a work unit. Teamwork is the concept of people working together cooperatively in order to accomplish their goals/objectives.
Applying the Strategy
To lead is to influence a group of people towards a goal or achievement. In developing leadership skills, one needs to find the style that best suits their personality. Effective leaders generate higher productivity, lower costs, and find more opportunities than ineffective leaders. They create real results and attain goals, inspiring and motivating others with more lasting results.
Great leaders utilize teams. Current corporate philosophy stresses that each member of a team plays an integral part in the success of the company. Through activities known as team building exercises, individuals can learn and practice trust, cooperation, brainstorming and feedback. These skills are invaluable to a business, in that they tap potential from within and create the ability to generate excitement. Whether it is for planning a meeting, managing a project, or giving a presentation, this enthusiasm is contagious, and makes the difference between being successful and being extraordinary.

What Leadership and Teams can do for you
For an effective team, a leader needs to be established. Good leadership skills stem from being both self-aware and socially aware. Good leaders know themselves, while striving to learn about others through listening, observation and a compassionate, open attitude. True leaders are a part of the team they lead.
Bringing together the right people whose skill and knowledge complement one another is key to team success. Members must share a common goal, respect one another, and be motivated to use their individual strengths to achieve the objectives.
