Summary/Abstract: The article’s objects of research are the specific dimensions of management roles in a team environment. Its main focus is the organizational context in which self-managed work teams function. It identifies the key changes in managers' attitudes, when they perform their roles during transformation from traditional to team-based structures. It analyzes the main issues in social practice, while seeking solutions for developing managerial potential. It explores specific means and tools for effective and adequate stimulation of managerial support. The conclusion that must be made is that sustainable development of SMWT and creating added value for the organization requires senior management to redesign and reorganize stereotypical internal interactions in accordance with the specific characteristics of the new team environment. Otherwise there is a potential for problems and possible failure of the SMWT concept.
