Agree. Challenging thing, however, is making the transition to a leader/coach role while coming from a mere understanding that a team leader is sort of a "boss" telling the team what to do. This can be tough for the team / tech leader herself as not only she needs to get along well with the team but also with the rest of the organization to make everyone know and agree upon what her role is all about. Some organizations need quite some time to adapt to the idea that a team makes "responsible team decisions" while the tech lead just defines the playground or the overall path to go. ;)
