Turn every team member into a project leader
Have you ever noticed that the "star player" on your team seems to do all the talking? Ever wonder what the others are thinking -- or what they might be holding back?

A team is a fabric, and each person's contribution adds to its overall strength. As a proactive project leader, you want to get your team members working together to address issues on their own initiative, instead of waiting for someone else to step up and take the lead. You want to support the development of your team members as well as your project's deliverables. You want an energized project environment, with team members who take responsibility for keeping relationships positive and effective. You want leadership from every seat at the table.

This course by Mike Aucoin, author of Right-Brain Project Management, discusses how each team member can exercise personal ownership and initiative throughout the project to avoid or solve typical project problems. After discussing how distributed leadership (or its lack) impacts the team and its success, he presents concepts the project manager can use to cultivate the leadership attitude and actions of each team member.
