What are a Team Leader’s Responsibilities?

Tanggung jawab merupakan suatu hal yang penting bagi kehidupan setiap individu.
Tidak hanya berlaku bagi kalangan usia tertentu, melainkan berlaku untuk setiap
individu dalam menjalani kehidupan sehari-harinya.

Contoh yang dapat kita lihat secara jelas tentang poin tanggung jawab ini adalah pada
sosok seorang pemimpin. Pemimpin ibarat seorang pengendali yang mengatur jalannya
sebuah struktur dalam perusahaan. Jika dalam sebuah perusahaan tidak memiliki
seorang pemimpin yang bertanggung jawab, maka struktur dan sistem yang ada dalam
perusahaan tersebut tidak akan selaras dengan visi dan misi yang ada.

Seorang pemimpin memiliki peranan penting dalam mencapai tujuan sesuai dengan visi
misi yang dimiliki perusahaan. Oleh karena itu, pemimpin harus memperhatikan
kekuatan, kelemahan, dan tujuan dari setiap anggotanya. Bukan hanya memberikan
tugas dan memantau tugas setiap anggota saja. Tugas dari seorang pemimpin itu
sendiri adalah bertanggung jawab pada keberhasilan seluruh tim maupun setiap
anggotanya, supaya dapat mencapai tujuan yang sama.

Mike Cardus & Company juga membahas topik mengenai poin-poin apa saja yang
merupakan tanggung jawab dari seorang pemimpin, yang dijelaskan dalam sebuah
artikel yang berjudul “Team Leaders Responsibility in Team Building”. Selamat

What is the team leader’s responsibility in team building?
The first responsibility of the team leader is to define the team’s objective; why is this
team together. When the purpose is unclear, unknowable, or complex, framing the
boundaries and defining that this team will work to make progress or identify clues that
may work to achieve a shared outcome is still setting the teams’ objective.
Once the team understands and accepts the objective, each person will develop trust
within the team and team members by knowing the skilled knowledge and role that each
team member will occupy.  This should be worked out jointly between the leader and
the individual concerned.
