    I would suggest mediation as a major responsibility.
    If it's not practically useful, then it's practically useless.

    The other activity, when not involved in mediation, would be meditation.

    "It does not work" is not a valid problem statement.

    Also, the ability as a manager to convince each staff member that the other staff members exist to work with and assist all issues that may occur, not to take their job away.

    - To conduct regular meetings and DBA team gatherings to discuss best practices, standards and working as a team to deliver those standards.

    - To foster a work environment where good (and bad) ideas are shared and discussed between team members, instead of designating and enabling "cowboy" attitudes.

    just my 2 cents with the "soft skills" required to be an effective manager/team leader. I feel a lot of this is ignored in this day and age, and results in a high percentage of turnover and disgruntled employees.
