    As a new team leader, it is important to first analyze the current team, meet with each of the team members to get a basic understanding of their personalities, skills, and strengths, and then become familiar with the current and upcoming projects. A project manager that takes these steps will set themselves up for success in the future.

    It is also important that the project manager reviews lessons learned from previous projects that have taken place in the organization. Projects, regardless of the end goal, often have many common similarities that appear often if project managers do not take the proper steps to avoid or mitigate those risks. A project manager should accept the lessons from the projects in order to prevent problems on future projects and must instill a culture amongst their team members and the organization in order to create an environment where the people want to learn from the past mistakes.

    A new team leader must show leadership but also must accept the support from senior leadership in order to be successful. I would take the time to sit down with the senior leadership to explain my goals and the ideas that I would like to implement. I would provide them with the details necessary for them to understand the importance of changing the culture and how important it is for the team members to see that management is fully behind the changes.
