You're not just part of the team, are you?
You are, as the team leader, at the center. You set the tone. You set the speed. You set the mood.
Those are powerful abilities, if you use them in high performance ways. You'll need power, and you'll need strength, and you can't grab that from anyplace else other than yourself. Your team is counting on you. Whether or not they tell you, they depend on you to be their strong leader. The strength of patience. The strength of persistence. The strength of high expectations.
Pull your team together. Talk with them individually AND as part of the whole team. Let them know how to succeed and they'll do their best to do so.
As much as you might want it to, your team will not build itself. It needs a strong leader.
You can do it. You're the boss.
