Building a Strong Team

I work with leaders daily who are always looking for ways to encourage and motivate their teams to meet goals.  As a leader, it can be difficult getting a team to think together and to move forward together.  I believe this is up to the leader and how they connect with their team.  As a leader, you must remember that you can no longer do the hands-on tasks.  Each member of your team now has the tasks to do as you oversee and mentor...
