    Hello BTW members :)

    I'm a new leader on a group for a website , writing content , internet marketing etc .

    The new thing that I'm the leader of this group that consist of 14 members , I'm the best one to be the leader with my knowledge and experience of internet and marketing while I have almost no experience about leadership management .

    Any suggestion or a book that you read it before so that you can recommend it to me ?

    1. Prioritize tasks
    2. Identify team members best suited to tasks
    3. Assign team members tasks
    4. Monitor progress
    5. Repeat when tasks are completed.

    I'm sorry to disagree. Leadership can be taught but you must be willing to learn and listen to new ways of thinking. 14 years of military service taught me alot.

    1. Don't forget to tell people something like "You did a great job today" or if they messed up but were doing honest hard work and effort "Don't wory it will go better next time".
    2. Punish in PRIVATE and praise in PUBLIC.
    3. Document when they do something very well. Not just when they screw up.
    4. Listen to ideas from the team. That does not mean you have to use them but just listening to them makes them feel more involved.

    These tips should get you going. If you need more or specifics just PM me.

    Processes are key. Learn bpmn and draw your processes, find the errors and resolve them.
    Never do the same thing twice.
