Technical Guidance: You'll most likely be involved in high-level architectural talks before translating that idea to your team members. You will educate the team about the technical considerations that were made. Also, make certain that the team properly executes the solutions.

Technical Decisions: It is critical that everyone on the team has a say in technical choices. During a disagreement, however, a technical lead should make the final choice to move the team ahead.
