As a Team Leader, your daily goal is to work with your team to achieve the production objectives. You start the day with a ‘day start’ in which you discuss safety, quality, logistics, planning, and budget (SQLTC) with your team. Then you get to work, and as a team leader, you ensure that your team can achieve the intended goals. You are a true coach and leader for your team members. You are present on the work floor and create a pleasant and safe working environment for yourself and your multicultural team.
You listen, steer, support, and solve issues to keep your team working smoothly. At the shift change, you ensure that your team hands over their work properly. You conduct selection, performance, and evaluation interviews. You ensure that new colleagues receive a good onboarding experience and all colleagues can continuously develop. You look at the needs of the people, the team, and the organization. You are responsible for executing the department’s annual plan and report to the unit manager.
