How is Team Leadership Structured?
Team leadership generally exists in two forms:
- Traditional Teams (Manage-Lead Teams) - A manager serves as the team leader. The manager has decision-making authority, hires/fires team members, and is accountable for team results.
- Self-Managed Teams - The team is appointed with collective decision-making authority. They may have the power to select their own leader or to establish rules and authority by consensus. It is common for self-managed teams to elect a leader for purposes of coordinating the team activities with the larger organization.
Self-Directed Team - These teams have little or no external oversight. The members determine the leader, team members, processes, etc. They are, however, accountable to the organization for goal achievement or task completion.
