Spider, The 2 key words in your question: TEAM and LEADER. For the most part, Team Leaders are temporary hired help. I don't mean this in a derogatory manner but a simple statement of fact. Team Leader tenure is usually short compared to the NCOs who are the life blood of the team. The Team Leader position is a chance to learn a profession, apply leadership techniques and management skills in an extremely demanding atmosphere. IF, you make it thru SFAS, drop me a PM. I will send you the short boiled down, in a nutshell briefing I used to give an O when he was assigned to my team explaining what he should focus on to ensure he had a successful command tour as a Special Forces Team Leader.
