Plan ahead to watch television programmes or United Nations activities in which you are likely to see team leaders in action. You should analyze and discuss their behaviour and qualities with a friend or colleague, trying to identify good and bad practices.
You might like to seek out another team leader, whose unit is particularly effective. Ask them for a meeting, or even better, spend some time with them during working hours. Identify the ingredients of their success and report to your manager about any new practices which you intend to adopt.
