A team coordinator on IDEO’s Global Brand team is very much like a “Producer”, you may have moments of being a director, actor, or writer, but for the most part you are the magic maker that helps pull it all together, helps team members show up as their best selves, and helps the larger group deliver great work. Team coordinators are plugged into the behind-the-scenes of IDEO’s business because they are relied on to help prioritize time and resources when work pulls teams in many different directions. Team coordinators are counted on to help teams stay on top of things, show up with confidence, be ready to take on any conversation, and take part in maintaining key relationships. Team coordinators are also key players building and nurturing team culture. One of IDEO’s values is Make Others Successful, and it is often the greatest strength of team coordinators.
