There will be some different responsibilities for team leaders in different areas but by and large they will be the administrative head of their department. All the work they collate will be passed to the supervisor to enable them to plan ahead and decide how to reorganize or expand the department.

To fully understand how the office is working there will be plenty of facts and figures that need to be processed. It will be concerning for some colleague as they may think they are being checked up on in an excessive manner and it is important to let them know that while you are aware of what they are doing the main reason is not to find fault with them. By letting them know what you are doing you will have their confidence and will find that they are happy to share what they are doing with you.

There will be the need to liaise first with the staff to find out their views and any concerns and then with the supervisor. By making sure you give both sides honest answers and make sure nothing is hidden from either side your job should not be too difficult.

You will be able to arrange training for staff that want or need it and will also be working alongside them in their daily work. It will not be good if they see you as just watching them and not working with them. As long as you don’t seem to be siding with the supervisor and not putting the needs of your team first it should not be a difficult job.

Depending on your supervisor you may also find that you may have some more unsavory tasks to carry out as discipline and breaking bad news such as redundancy or changes to terms and conditions.
