The successful team which I work with is actually the team that I am working with right now. I have a part time job at the APlus VIP Lounge at downtown Urbana. My position is shift leader and I think the team structure at
APlus VIP Lounge confirm to the Simple Hierarchy team
I think the team configuration frees the manager to focus on mission and external relations while leaving operational details to the shift leaders to staff. Moreover, it shows multiple characteristics of high quality-teams highlighted by Katzenbach and Smith’s research. First, our team is in
manageable size. Second, we are good at translating common purpose into
specific, measurable performance goals. For example, we want our customers to
have better atmosphere, we will do very detailing room cleaning and microphone
sanitizing every day. Third, all of our team members are accountable. One for
all and all for one is our principle. Last but not least, our team develops the
right mix of expertise as everyone in the team has their specific roles and
works, which are decided by their own specialties.
Overall, I think I enjoy working with the team and l look forward to the future.
