To keep the team going, leaders have to motivate their team members. They can’t be if their relationship with their leaders is strained. The bond between teams and their leaders should be positive and fresh, and should foster mutual respect and understanding. Communication facilitates all this. So many teams have failed because relationships have gone sour and entire teams have quit simply because the lines of communication were limited and flawed.
Communication also allows for the exchange of ideas, which are designed to introduce improvements to the team’s inner workings, and which the leader might not have conceived yet. If members are permitted and encouraged to voice their thoughts, the team can benefit from a fertile flux of ideas. And as leaders, they should be all about the team and how they can forge ahead to accomplish the tasks at hand.
