Term Definition
Team Leader

Team Leaders of parallel teams ensure that the work of their team is carried out by performing a range of coordinating and supportive duties and responsibilities. To be effective, Team Leaders must use a variety of skills in facilitation, communication, coordination, negotiation, consensus building, problem solving, and other areas of interpersonal behavior. Team Leaders of aligned teams serve as supervisors of these organization units and are usually titled as supervisory. Team Leaders of permanent teams possess many, but not all, of the supervisory responsibilities usually residing with formal supervisors as well as many of the features of parallel team leaders (USAID Automated Directives System - ADS - Chapter 102). Team Leaders are player coaches who work with a group of team members to achieve specific tasks, produce analytical work products and services, meet long - short term program goals, and are also responsible for individual team tasks (USAID Automated Directives System - ADS - Chapters 202, 203, 204, 251, 305, 462).
