As aTeam Lead, you are an instrument to help others obtain their career goals. Your job is not only to keep track of multiple drilling projects, but also to take of your team. There is not a typical day. Everyday can be different, so below are a few helpful hints.
Expect that you will have someone come into your office to ask for help, and it could be nothing to do with the job. Keep your composure and make time for that person. Listening can make a difference to that person so that if you ever need him/her to give a little extra. He/She knows that you have their back.
Be prepared to make decisions in the middle of the night. Drilling is 24/7. There can be problems. Have a plan in place and gather as much information as you can before making a decision.
Be prepared for meetings. There will be many meetings that will require your input or presence.
Remember, people are most valuable asset. A leader is not a leader without a team. Check on your team often to see if you can help.
