You are leader of the team you have to show habit of deep work in your behavior then your words will be backed by your actions and everyone in your team will follow that
- How to not feel exhausted after the deep work session?
- How do you sustain deep work when you have never been able to do so no matter how hard you try?
- How do you motivate yourself to have a deep work session in the morning when you know you already have a lighter work load that day?
- How do I eliminate distractions?
- How to stay motivated whilst working?
This is actually a very good and hard question to answer. I find that it has to be integrated in at bookends of the day to be done consistently. This is something I really struggle with and tend to do best in the morning. Also there are certain project's which get help from those who I manage who i can encourage deep work with or to do independently and share how went.
Pick a point where you need to focus on a particular task (such as answering emails or writing reports) and use that as your deep work.

You should be able to follow the same guidelines. Eliminate distractions and pick a goal/task to accomplish. If everything on your list is small tasks, then go through those one at a time until your deep work session is over. If the task is talking with or listening to your team, then giving them your complete attention is still a form of deep work.
The short answer is, you don’t. Pick another task. Tasks that require unpredictable reactions like managing don’t follow the deep work format. But, that said, there will be some tasks in your work that require engaging on the same topic for 25+ minutes. Writing a series of emails, reviewing evaluation reports, or writing a proposal. Use deep work for tasks like that.

in that situation i would focus solely on the idea of supporting your team for 25 minutes. ignore all other responsibilities.
I block my calendar for important items where I need time to focus. As long as my calendar shows free expectation is set for members to freely approach me for anything they need help or guidance on. This is on top of scheduled one on one seasions with them to check how they are doing and get feedback on how I can support their growth.
