Team leaders need to empower every member of the team.

Failing to rise to a challenge never feels good. You'll end up wondering if things would've gone differently if you'd only been more ready. So when a team confronts a challenge, the team leaders need to be very prepared.

As a team leader, you always need to be in top form. You owe that to your team – they'll be expecting more from you than from the others. So leaders need to perform at the highest level, both physically and psychologically.

This means many things. For one, you'll need to condition yourself to be able to handle situations where you can't sleep. You never know when you'll have to face a crisis situation and stay up all night. This is true whether you're leading an expedition to Mount Everest, or a team of programmers in a company.

If you, as the leader, get stressed out about something minor like being tired, you'll stress the rest of your team out as well. So it's a good idea to “practice” sometimes, so you'll be ready when you have to experience it.

Good leaders also understand that it's their duty to inspire leadership in others. They need to ask team members to rise to new responsibilities, so they'll grow as leaders themselves.

This sort of leadership makes the team function more effectively, and also prepares them for the worst possible scenarios. This could be a matter of life or death in a place like the Himalayas.

Leaders should prepare their teams so well that they're skilled enough to move ahead with the mission even without the leader.

Leadership skills are essential, so you should never stop developing them.
