Being in leader-ship position means getting bit away from the tasks at transaction level but retaining the ability and vigour to deep dive into the details if the situation warrants. This is lot more relevant for people who join organizations directly in leadership positions. While being a role model in all aspects of soft skills (which includes not just communication but other aspects like time management, conflict managment and also people engagement initiatives), being a TL / Supervisor essentially means NOT to lose touch with the transactions completely !!

However, those who get promoted from lower levels have a different type of problem !! Getting used to prioritizing the learning and experimenting the wide range of soft skills which were not so important until now AND getting out of comfort zone becomes important for this category.

Being a great team leader or supervisor means you have a multitude of roles encompassed under one title. Depending on the variables also factor in that you will hon in on your skills that more crucially applies. Naturally communication is key, however if communication from supervisor to subordinate is under par. A great supervisor could choose to lead by example, if your employee doesn't feel safe to approach you, doesn't feel essential to the team or doesn't succeed, then you have essentially failed. Why? That employees success is the measurement of a supervisor. If they fail you failed. Soft skills, empathy, listening, understanding, and ultimately the goal of resolution for the over all desired outcome.
