Game Time

As an Executive Team Leader, the 4th quarter is like the “Super Bowl” of retail because it consists of a high sales, high traffic and high focus being around the holidays. For me, this is my favorite time of year. Not only was I able to be a strategic thought partner and create plans for the entire store in order to drive sales and initiatives, but I am able to walk through the execution with the entire team, getting them excited and prepared to have a successful holiday season. When I talk about the 4th quarter being like the “Super Bowl” this means as a team, we have worked hard to get to this point, and now we are putting the finishing touches on the season. The holidays consist of collaboration with peers and the entire store! You feel as if you are one big family, because we are all going through it together. The energy and drive at a store during this time is inspiring. That is why this is my favorite time of year.

The key characteristic that comes into play during the 4th quarter and as an Executive Team Leader is “Leadership”. I am a competitive, team oriented person by nature, and to have the opportunity to lead a multi-million dollar store is amazing. I get to focus on developing my leadership everyday through the incredible tools and resources Target provides, helping me become a better leader. Our most valuable asset at Target is the people! I love that I am able to utilize my leadership to focus on building others up, motivating, teaching and training in order to help teams and leaders become the best they can be, which in turn builds a strong organization.

As an ETL, not only do I get to focus on leading others at a store level, but I have the opportunity to become a mentor and resource to other leaders and stores in the district. This is another way to build upon your leadership, while providing your knowledge and experience with other leaders to help them be successful. I love that I am able to take my competitive and team oriented nature into an organization to engage, motivate and develop others, while building a business to drive sales, initiatives and goals.

    To Whom it May Concern,

    Yesterday, I was most capably assisted by Lucy in Guest Services. I was in need of the use of a telephone, as being from Canada, we were without one. Lucy not only complied with my request, she also wrote the telephone number down on a piece of paper for my future use.
    Outstanding service is one of the many reasons my wife and I enjoy shopping at your store. Lucy is certainly a skilled staff member of your team!

    Yours truly,
    Brian

    I like that. “The holidays consist of collaboration with peers and the entire store! You feel as if you are one big family, because we are all going through it together.” This is showing leadership in motives that are able to lead a competitive work environment were teams work at their hardest. Quite!

    Possession is a busness man attitude and I love the best leaders to me on my team!

    Best.
