I have found that the most important factor is to create a personal connection with each team member and create a way for each one to feel a connection to our overall goal. When everyone feels invested in the result, they will be an active and involved part of the group, leading us all to success."

      "I believe getting everyone to understand that we are all on the same team, and we will support everyone to the best of our abilities - has played a big part in my current team's success. If people have something going on at home, they know someone will cover for them. If they make a warranty decision they know that their team and supervisor is going to have their back."

      Rachelle's Answer

      This sounds like a perfect team environment and a very cohesive way of working together. It may also be helpful to speak about the state of the team when you took over, and how it's improved under your leadership.
