Sounds like you are very lucky to have such an experienced team. But your question is an easy one to answer.

The responsibility of your people is to decide what to do, how to do it, and then do it. Your responsibility as their boss is to support them so that they can do their very best at meeting their responsibilities.

Support consists of training, tools, parts, material, discipline, direction, information, planning, and the like. The only way you can determine if they need something they don't have is to ask them and then do your best to give it to them. They may need better tools. They may have a slacker among them who is not doing her share of the work so you must work to improve that person's performance with discipline being one of the methods but only after discussing the problem with the person. They may want information and your job is to get it for them no matter what it is so long as it is not personal.

If you want to learn more about being the leader of a group, take a look at the articles and videos at my website. The answers you need are there.

Best regards, Ben Simonton

Leadership is a science and so is engagement

It\'s entirely possible - and at times logical and practical - to be supervised by someone who is younger than you.
It may be the qualities of competence, creativity, confidence, concern, care and effective communication with a sense of extreme commitment that may lead one to a senior managerial/leadership role. Collectively these would add up to charisma - a skill, a trait - that charms the environment and gets the work done, effectively.
What counts for you to grow is tenacity with tenderness, dexterity with daunting, authenticity with accountability, mindfulness with meaningfulness. With such a well defined tight-rope walking strategy in place, with you being a team mate today, there is no reason why you can\'t be the team leader tomorrow.
