Discussion on: What is a good team lead in your opinion?

A good team lead has to be able to fire (or at least remove) low performing team members (which can be surprisingly difficult sometimes), and makes sure that team/individual work/achievements are recognized.

Good leads I worked with would run interference whenever POs would request things directly from me, and another good manager even gave me tips for asking for more money during our performance review.
