ASA Team Philosophy
People in every workplace talk about building the team, working as a team, and my team, but few understand how to create the experience of teamwork, or how to develop an effective team.
Belonging to a team in the broader sense is a result of feeling part of something larger than yourself. It has a lot to do with understanding the mission and vision of the overall organization, and the objective of a particular project.
In a team oriented environment, you contribute to the overall success of the organization. You work with fellow members of the agency to produce successful results, even though you have specific tasks and you belong to a specific department, you are unified with other agency members to accomplish the overall objectives. The bigger picture drives your actions, and your job and its functions exist to serve this bigger picture.
With such a mindset, your work becomes an adventure, thrusting fulfillment into one’s life.
Expectations, Context and Commitment
The ASA will provide job descriptions for remunerated and voluntary positions. The job descriptions will outline the duties and expectations for the role, and indicate the importance of that role within the context of the ASA’s overall mission and vision. They will also include the ASA’s commitment to the individual, and the individual’s commitment to the ASA.
The overall objective of the job description is to articulate the areas for inspiration and innovation, and to assist as a creative directive in undertaking an exciting career.
Any personal information provided by you in the process of applying for a position within the ASA will be used for the purpose of matching your skills and experience to job opportunities.
