You already know that the ultimate success of your lab is dependent on what other people accomplish and achieve. After all, there is no way that you can do it all, so you have to rely on your employees and co-workers to get things done. Your job as a leader then becomes to make sure that you give your team members the direction and the tools they need to get things accomplished; and to be supportive and help iron out problems when they arise. And oh yes, all the while hoping that they’ll all play well in the sandbox together! High-performing teams CAN accomplish great things, but the opposite is also unfortunately true ... dysfunctional teams can suck the lifeblood out of you and your organization!
