"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader." - John Quincy Adams
In today’s fast-paced times, there are endless challenges at every step. At times like these, every firm setup needs leadership that adapts, motivates, and devises strategic solutions, while honoring the needs of every employee. Good leadership skills are capable of changing the course of where a firm is headed.
So what exactly is the role of the team leader? And how do we, at GoodWorkLabs, train our employees for bigger challenges? At GoodWorkLabs, with the employment of various techniques and practices, we make sure all our employees are not only getting equal opportunities to grow and expand themselves but also, prepare them for a bigger, brighter future.
Importance of a Good Leader
A team leader is someone who establishes a set of expectations, monitors progress, motivates, and provides guidance and support to the team members so that the tasks at hand can be completed successfully. The role of the leader is to be a communicator, problem-solver, and resource-provider for teams to reach set goals.
At the start of every project, the team leader does the initial hand-holding during the inception of the process. The leader must make sure the project’s health is good and to proactively address red flags and escalation if any. To avoid loss of communication in translations, we make sure to use innovative tools like JIRA, Confluence, Slack, GIT, GITLAB, Zeplin, and Invision to ensure continuous communication and collaboration across teams.
Opportunities And Learnings For Entry-Level Employees For Leadership Positions
At GoodWorkLabs, we believe that every small step matters. And every learning (big or small) can make a huge difference in your career graph and that’s why we provide several opportunities for our employees to learn leadership skills and make the best of their departments.
GoodWorkLabs believes in the Continuous Development of our employees. This is made possible through several ways – upskill/reskill. There are many comprehensive programs to groom resources such as on-the-job training, in-house talent identification programs so that they can be identified and trained methodically, and competency assessment programs to assess employee competencies, their strengths, and weaknesses, so that customized programs can be developed for these young leaders.
The hiring philosophy involves hiring problem solvers mainly and people who are passionate about technology and are well-acquainted with high scalability experience.
Employees can also subscribe to several online courses such as Udemy, Upgrad, etc. for training on upcoming skills and technologies.
Since GoodWorkLabs is a Google-certified agency, it is equally important for our developers to be trained by Google directly on the latest Google tech. There’s also client-specific training such as DevOps, Scrum, etc. so that we can discuss at length with our prospective clients their needs and requirements.
We’re always on the lookout for building, enhancing, and celebrating the huge powerhouse of talent at GoodWorkLabs. Our Talent Hunt Show held in December 2021 was also one of the many events that were organized to find the other hidden talents in our employees, other than being super awesome at developing, coding, etc.
As a leading company in India and globally that provides high-end digital platform strategy and services, it is our duty to give the equal best to our employees and our actions always reflect our policies. To learn more, head over to our homepage at: https://www.goodworklabs.com/
