Your Outlook should be adjusted

It’s impossible to be an expert at everything. Recognize your strengths and accomplishments and see adversity and learning as an opportunity to grow.

Be an example
Leaders must be able to think clearly and have positive outlook so that they can set an example. Despite my positive outlook, I like to have control. I must make an effort to find the positive in every situation, keep my eyes open, and look for creative solutions. It is not always easy. However, by doing this, I am able to infect my team and keep them focused on the future, despite any bumps.
It is vital to know your team members and have confidence in them. It is crucial to equip your team with strategies that will help each person develop self-confidence. This will allow you to build resilience in the face unexpected.
Encourage your team to not take responsibility for setbacks or to assign blame. Instead, encourage the team to focus on the solution and learn from it. Encourage your team to move past any negativity and encourage them to be positive and work towards improving the situation.
Building stronger relationships
Team members who have good relationships will be more reliant on each other and work together to overcome any obstacles. Team members must get to know one another in order to trust and respect one another. Team members should have opportunities to share experiences that are not typical of their daily work. Take time for team building activities that are fun and memorable, and moreover structured around fostering open communication, shared knowledge and give space for storytelling. To build resilience and trust in your team, it is essential to find common ground, understand others, and develop empathy.
