Abstract

The authors explored the significance of team leadership in organizations as they face complex tasks, globalization, and their response to changes that necessitate the flattening of their structures. Secondary sources, particularly scholarly articles or peer-reviewed literature from the past five years, were reviewed. The biblical foundation for team leadership was examined, showing that the Bible is replete with examples and narratives of team leadership, with unity among the team members as very paramount. Three important theories served as the study'sbedrocks: team leadership theory, distributed leadership theory, and participative leadership theory. The article explains that effective team leadership that equips, empowers, and harmonizes teamwork will enhance the team members' high performance and collaborations, resulting in prompt complex problem-solving and the achievement of the organizational goals. As such, authentic relationships among team members are needed to get the organizational machinery in full swing for complex tasks to be achieved. In this way, globalization becomes an accelerated agenda.
