Administrative professionals often view themselves as “lone warriors”. But, as with most things in business, teamwork is a critical component of their success. A strong admin team should have all of the following 8 key elements. Read on to see how well your admin team meets these criteria.
A wide variety of personality types, opinions, experiences and backgrounds are represented.
2. Sense of Purpose
The team shares common goals that are recognized as meaningful and important.
3. Mutual Commitment
Everyone on the team agrees and is committed to the strategies and plans put in place to achieve common goals.
4. Shared Etiquette
There are well-understood norms of behavior and interaction.
5. Clear Roles & Responsibilities
Each team member knows and respects his or her function on the team as well as that of others.
Team members have a shared confidence in one another’s abilities; each person can rely on the others to do their part and follow through on their word.
There is mutual admiration and appreciation for each individual’s personal contributions and unique talents.
There is a respectful, polite and civil discourse even when individuals don’t see eye-to-eye; team members listen deeply to one another and understand non-verbal cues.
