Building and managing teams is not easy.  It requires that you search for talented individuals that have the skills you need and the potential you hope will help you accomplish your goals.  All the talent and potential in the world can’t get you to the finish line if you do not find ways to give your team members space to engage with you.  In this episode, I talk about things that I keep in mind no matter what size my team is.  From making yourself accessible, and creating ways for team members to engage with information in their own way, to understanding your power dynamic, you will need to consistently work to remain empathetic and open.  The goal is to build a space where people feel that they can ask for help without exposing themselves to criticism.  If you create a team that feels secure in taking a chance, you will gain the best they can possibly contribute to your path forward.
