team-management

7

Y'all, I’ve tried to escalate this with corporate and human resources and I’ve been met with not even the most moderate concern and there has been no urgency to remove this employee, despite multiple reports from myself and the two other Black people at our store. This isn’t the first instance of antiblackness from this employee and it makes work really toxic. So far all three of us feel virtually unheard. 

Our management team has continued to train this person to be a supervisor and they expect me to fall in line and do the same. They’ve painted us three as bullies and excuse early him from his shifts whenever I clock in to close the store. None of us have received an apology and whenever the issue is talked about, all that’s mentioned is how badly he feels about his “joke.” Starbucks is such fucking bullshit. They’re continuing to employ an outed racist and are actually working to promote him to a supervising position. Similar events have happened in the past and their response has been to put the wronged employees experiencing racism on paid leave rather than fire the racist. My coworker has a friend who stood up for himself and protested racism at his own store, and he was put on paid leave until he found another job.

I shouldn’t be forced to work with a racist, nor should I fear for my job when calling out a racist. This is fucking maddening. I don’t even know what the hell I’m supposed to do in this situation.

Cait is obsessed with Massive Attack band, she went to their concerts, first in London and today in Italy, it wasn't Tony in the music industry and managing this type of alternative rock bands? I think he's back in that business and she's supporting his work during her down time.

Cait does appear to enjoy Massive Attack. But her enjoyment of the band doesn’t have to have any more behind it than that. Her friend Tony McGill did manage a Scottish band called The Fratellis many years back, but he was their manager as they were starting out and playing local gigs. When they turned up in LA to “make it big” they had a new manager, though as a friend Tony remained close to the band. He then tried his hand at record production and now operates a pub in northwest London. There’s no reason to believe that he is part of the management team for Massive Attack, and his move away from London, which is the center of the UK music industry, earlier this year doesn’t fit either if he was managing a mega-popular touring band with a major label record deal such as Massive Attack. It’s more likely that she is a fan of the band, just as Sam is a fan of WWPJ and attends many of their shows, and when they are playing a venue in such a lovely city as Naples and she is on holiday why not go and enjoy the show?

Modest literally and figuratively wrote Harry a very public goodbye letter. lol Um, I love how this has been ignored. Didn't Louis' new people say a very public Hello to him? This is such nonsense how people just chose to see what they want and people actually believe this when it's sooooo easily disproven.

(This is in response to “There’s no sign that any of the boys are free of Modest and Syco yet” as discussed here.)

You know what it goes back to? Their acceptance of the whole “NT vs OT” thing. Of course, right from the start, the degree to which they think these contracts can control every aspect of the artists’ lives is simply utterly, utterly ridiculous. But also the entire concept that someone would have multiple management teams simultaneously, one a positive force and one an evil force that they can’t escape - completely and utterly under the power of their contracts, which force the artists to live a lie about their personal and professional lives…. but which can’t prevent them from signing up with new management. None of this makes even the slightest bit of sense. It’s just. So incredibly absurd and stupid. And they’re out there pretending to have knowledge about the music industry?

Separate management for a solo career vs a band career - sure, that makes sense. Especially because they are managing their PROFESSIONAL lives, not their personal ones. But Larries have been saying Irving Azoff was at the helm of New Team and secretly managing 1D alongside Modest for over a year now, putting out “alternative” press releases, trying (and apparently failing miserably) to manage “babygate”, etc etc. Now Liam has signed an entirely new team but they’re saying OT still have their hands in his life and choices? That they’re still preventing Louis from freeing himself? That they’re still forcing Niall to pretend enthusiastically and at length that he’s embarked on a major golf venture with them?

NT is such an important part of Larry theories. They use it to give themselves hope, to explain times when they can’t deny that Louis is playing along, to explain things like no one hating him for being a dad. And now it’s established the foundation for this idea, which will become extremely important to them - that someone can sign all new contracts with an entirely new team, but still be completely under the power of their previous team. 

Niall not being listed as director on Modest Golf’s filings is too bizarre for them to handle, Briana losing her pregnancy weight quickly is beyond their imagination, they keep saying that “too much” about reality is “weird.” But this absolute nonsense, they don’t even question.

I’ve been recruited for a special task! Even though it looks easy, in fact, easier than the task I was doing before, I’m told that it’s very important and that I’m the only one who can do it.

The boss came in one day and announced that he needed a special helper for something really important! Then he held his hand up to his brow as if he were a pioneer gazing out into the distance of some foreign land. He turned left and then right and then stopped on me.

Then he frowned.

“I don’t know…” he said, doubtfully.

And that made me so nervous!

“No!” I shouted. “Please! Please trust me! I can do it!”

“Well…Hmm….Okay, what the hell! Let’s try it out!”

Again, the only thing I can definitively say about the task is that it’s really, really easy and I’d probably feel insulted if I didn’t know how incredibly important it is. Also, I would probably doubt that it’s incredibly important if I wasn’t constantly told that despite what I might suspect, it’s incredibly important.

In this new role, I am isolated from others and even our lunch shifts are staggered, but if the main boss, my dad, ever calls the office, the supervisor is able to confirm that indeed I do still work there.

It’s a special task and only I can do it. But I guess if I didn’t do it for say…a week or so, nobody would probably even notice. In fact, I know that’s true. I haven’t done anything for a full month now and sure enough, nobody has noticed.

Through the grate I can see their feet. When a shoelace dangles through, I am quick to chew it off and swallow it. It is merely a nuisance at this point, but in time, they will notice and the occurrences will be elevated to the status of a mystery worth solving.

And by god, I hope they solve it!

BRAND IT LIKE BECKHAM Liam Payne’s solo career to be managed by team behind David Beckham

LIAM PAYNE shocked fans by launching  his new solo music career last week.

But what’s more surprising is he didn’t pen the deal wearing a sarong and covered in even more tattoos.

That’s because I can reveal Liam’s solo fortunes are going to be managed by the team behind Brand Beckham.

Former England skipper DAVID’s confidant Simon Oliveira will attempt to replicate his success with his leading client, which will no doubt be reflected in Liam’s back account.

Therefore as well as shiny new music through his new record label Capitol, I wouldn’t rule out seeing the ONE DIRECTION star taking on some very lucrative endorsement deals over the next  couple of years.

A source said: “Liam has made a bold move going solo so why not go for management of the highest calibre.

“He also already has a huge profile so the scope to increase his brand further is obvious.

“Being one half of one of the most recognisable couples in Britain obvious helps.”

I can also reveal CHERYL was his inspiration to go it alone.

Liam’s always harboured hopes of moving into the background during 1D’s hiatus, writing with various  musicians, but not as the main focus.

But the former GIRLS ALOUD singer has given him the confidence to become a solo star in his own right, similar to how she did after the girlband went on their own break.

My source added: “Liam probably enjoyed the limelight the least after ZAYN MALIK in One Direction.

“He enjoyed the recording and creative process, so that was the way he was heading.

“But being with Cheryl has given him the drive to break through himself.

“He knows she will be his unofficial mentor too.”

Now Liam’s signed with Doyen Global, the likelihood of the couple becoming a brand like Posh and Becks is becoming even more of a reality.

Managing director Simon, who founded the company with Matthew Kay, is also Becks’ PR, adviser and close pal.

Liam will be his firm’s first foray into music, as it specialises in sport and film.

But thankfully he’s unlikely to get Liam and Cheryl to wear matching leather outfits like Posh and Becks did in his Manchester United heyday.

Capitol Records UK signs Liam Payne
Latest Labels News from the Music Industry

Liam Payne has signed a major record contract with Capitol Records UK.

The move to a Universal label makes Payne - who will soon be going into the studio to work on his first solo album - the first former One Direction star to sign a deal away from Sony. Zayn, who was the first singer to leave the group, released his debut solo album via RCA, while Harry Styles signed to Columbia (which released One Direction’s albums in the US) last month.

Payne has also assembled a brand new management team around him, with more details to be announced in due course.

Nick Raphael, president, Capitol Records UK said: “Capitol Records UK are incredibly excited to be working with Liam. It’s not often you get the chance to sign such a talented and ambitious 22-year-old who has already conquered the world.”

Payne commented: “I’m really happy to have signed to such a prestigious label as Capitol Records UK. Capitol Records has an amazing history stretching right back before even Frank Sinatra and I’m really looking forward to becoming part of their story.

"One Direction will always be my family; I’m now excited to show what I can do as a solo artist.”

[T]he tool needs to support superficially silly things like sharing animated gifs and emoji. Lest you think I’m kidding about that, let me be very clear: I am serious. The variety of expression available to team members across a medium like chat is considerably smaller than that achievable by people in a room together; images (even and especially frivolous ones) serve to fill in that gap and ensure productive and fun conversation. When your team can discuss a complicated topic and arrive upon a decision together using only animated gifs, you will know you have succeeded.

Mandy Brown on Making remote teams work

I know people use Campfire and IRC a lot but are there teams using daily google hangouts? Would that meet these standards?

@thatbastardmiyuki

     The official third year’s retirement had only been a few days prior and Chris already missed his old duties as the team’s manager, despite only having held onto them for a few months. He already moved into his new room the day before to have the weekend off to go back home and visit his parents. After all, he had promised them to be there as soon as he had time, mostly to talk about his future plans after high school. Still, they didn’t knew yet that the third year had decided to change a few plans and take Miyuki with him. They had been together for a while now and he wanted his parents to know. Plus, he wanted Miyuki to meet them as well. After all, Chris had already been able to meet his family.

     Once he checked that packed everything he needed into his bag, he made sure to hide his sweets properly to hinder Masuko finding them in his absence (not that he wasn’t ready to share some, but he actually wanted to have some for himself too), before he left the room to make his way to the front gate where he wanted to meet up with Miyuki. It was already afternoon with school over since barely two hours but they’d have a bit of a way there, so leaving this early would get them there before dinner.

Okay I have this AU of cheerleader bitty (idk why but i do) but then I realize that they cant really dance at games because it's cold and also ice but idk i just love the idea of Jack getting distracted by Bitty but Bitty also passive aggressively criticizing someone's basket toss (i know nothing about cheerleading) and ya, sorry for this but i saw your post and had to say something

ok but this could totally work if jack is a college football quarterback

  • like, bitty could’ve been on the football team in high school and was actually pretty decent because of his speed, but high school and college are very different so he decides right away that he isn’t going to play in college 
  • he ends up at samwell, and he becomes friends with some kids in one of his classes, two of them (ransom and holster) are on the football team, and the other (lardo) is the team manager 
  • they all get along because of their love for football, and when bitty mentions that he used to play at home, they all ask why he never tried out for samwell, and bitty admits that he knows he wouldn’t be good enough for college, but he’s perfectly content with just watching 
  • lardo is just all “dude, no. we can totally find something for you to do” 
  • and that’s how bitty ends up being one of the four male cheerleaders at samwell 
  • tbh i’m thinking shitty is one of them because he doesn’t strike me as a football type of guy? and maybe all of the men in his family played football in high school and college and they expected him to do the same, but he became a cheerleader instead to spite them 
  • anyway, the cheerleaders are at all of the home games, and go to as many away games as they can 
  • jack meets bitty early on in the semester when he’s walking past where they’re practicing on the field–he catches bitty doing a very impressive split in his extremely short shorts and his brain short circuits 
  • jack ends up tripping over his own feet and drops all of the equipment he had been carrying 
  • bitty’s runs over to help, of course, and the second he opens his mouth and asks if jack’s okay in that smooth, southern drawl of his, jack knows he’s a fucking goner 
  • so they make small talk, and from that point on, jack makes a point to walk right past the cheerleaders on the off chance that he gets to talk to bitty 
  • maybe one night, jack’s out on the field trying to clear his head, and all he wants to do is toss the football around but that’s kind of hard to do with one person 
  • but then bitty appears and volunteers his services, and prior to that night, jack hadn’t known about bitty’s football past (or that his dad is a high school football coach) 
  • jack falls even more in love when bitty throws the ball back with a perfect spiral 
  • it becomes a thing–if either of them have a particularly rough day, they text the other and they go out on the field and just hang out 
  • the thing is, jack is super duper obvious, so shitty, lardo, ransom, holster and even johnson catch on pretty quick 
  • they don’t really meddle, exactly, but they do find ways to make sure jack and bitty end up sitting on the bus together, or are left at the library or dining hall by themselves, etc 
  • bitty obvs really likes him, but he thinks jack is straight bc he’s a quarterback and the son of former nfl player winner bob zimmermann (in this au, bob’s a two-time superbowl winner and alicia was still a model/actress, but they settled down in the northeast where jack was born raised) 
  • aaaaand maybe jack gets seriously injured during a game and gets rushed to the hospital 
  • bitty and the others get there, and jack is loopy on pain meds 
  • “did i die?  am i dead?” 
  • “no, jack. you are very much alive” 
  • “if i’m not dead then why are you here? aren’t angels only in heaven?” 
  • bitty turns bright red and the others excuse themselves from the room, but their laughter can be heard from every room in the hospital 
  • “you took a pretty nasty hit there, jack” 
  • “everything hurts.  they said i have to get surgery” 
  • “you do. your parents are on their way.” 
  • “oh okay… you’re still gonna be here too, right?” 
  • “…do you want me to?” 
  • “i want you around all the time” 
  • bob and alicia get there, and then the doctor explains the procedure before jack is whisked off to the operating room 
  • bitty does end up staying, and a few hours later when jack wakes up and sees bitty in the room, his face goes up in flames 
  • “uh… hi bits” 
  • “hi, jack” 
  • “you’re still here” 
  • “i thought you wanted–” 
  • “of course, i just… oh, god. i can’t believe i said those things to you.” 
  • “were they true?” 
  • “………………..yes” 
  • “good” 
  • bitty just smiles and bends down and kisses him 
He Tells the Fans

Ashton:
“Babe!” Ashton yelled walking outside of the large house onto the pool deck where his girlfriend was currently reading while drinking a glass of iced tea using a brew she had just bought at David’s tea. It was just past three in the afternoon, Ashton and the boys having just returned from another meeting with the management team, not revealing any details to her unless things were finalized. “I have a question for you.”

“Shoot,” she responded closing the book while removing the sunglasses, her body covered in a beautiful strapless one piece bathing suit.

“What are your thoughts on making our relationship public…like telling the fans and everything?” he asked sitting in the lounge next to hers. She closed her book setting it beside her before sitting up, her bottom lip between her teeth as she thought. “Babe?”

“Give me a minute,” she responded thinking through the pros and how the cons were currently outweighing them, not to mention the fact they hadn’t even been dating for a week yet. “Why now?”

“What do you mean?”

“Ash…it hasn’t even been a week yet. Besides, these are your fans. They’re either going to love me, hate me, or hate that I’m with you before stalking me on all forms of social media and relentlessly trying to verbally attack me,” she stated back, Ashton standing up from his chair to sit on the edge of hers.

“I know it hasn’t even been a week yet, but I don’t want to hide you. I want to show you off to the world and go out with you without worrying that I can’t kiss you or hold your hand. I’ve been trying to date you for three weeks now, I don’t want to go a moment where I can’t show you off now that I have you,” he muttered looking down at his lap. She studied his face and how vulnerable he looked in that moment wanting nothing more than to take that away from him. In all honesty, she was terrified. Ashton Irwin, probably one of the sexiest twenty-two years old’s on the planet was not only her boyfriend, but wanted to do everything he possibly could to show her how much he cared, when her ex boyfriend whom she dated for two years didn’t even want to hold her hand around his friends.

She leaned towards him, taking his face in her hand and turning it towards her to press a kiss to his lips softly, only having it returned full force, slipping his tongue in her mouth momentarily. “Go ahead, babe. You can tell them.”

Calum:
“You are so fucking adorable,” Calum said as he flicked through instagram filters, y/n looking over his shoulder helping him choose.

“I can’t believe you’re doing this,” she said before settling on one.

“I can’t believe you’re letting me. I thought it would be more of a fight to go public with you,” he stated back honestly, which was true, she wasn’t the most confident girl, but he was slowly bringing that out of her, for the better.

“If I can kiss my mans in public, it’s all worth it,” she muttered simply before pressing her lips to his, a smile growing on his face as he deepened the kiss slipping his tongue in her mouth, hand rested on her cheek.

“Your mans?” he questioned with a slight laugh.

“Yes, babe. My mans. Now hurry up and post it so we can go get food. I’m starving and there’s pancakes calling my name.”

Luke:
Luke Hemmings spotted for forth time in Sydney with mystery girl holding hands. Could this be the guitarist’s new girl?

“We made the front page, again,” y/n, said watching Luke make his way towards her in the coffee shop they usually get coffee in every morning. She held up the magazine with their figures plastered on the front holding hands. He leaned in to kiss her lightly before sitting across from her taking the magazine from her hands, opening it up to the three page article dedicated entirely to them.

“Luke Hemmings, age twenty, has been spending more time at the beach lately than in the studio with his band. Could she be the reason why? Luke and his mystery girl have been seen spending quite some time together from the Good Charlotte concert two weeks ago to a roaming the streets of Sydney hand in hand. Sources confirm this mystery girl, who goes by the name of y/n y/l/n works at one of the surf shacks on the beach near the Hemmings household drawing the attention of the singer,” Luke read out loud giggling slightly.

“Are they always so nosy?”

“Oh, babe, you have no idea,” he said closing the magazine before sipping at his brew, a huge smile on her face. “What?”

“Nothing. Just the fact that I’m drawing the attention of singer Luke Hemmings,” she stated back simply causing him to smile.

“Why don’t we just make our relationship public and stop the rumors?”

“Okay,” she said simply shrugging her shoulders sipping at her cup as well.

“Okay? That’s it?” he asked as she nodded.

“Yeah, I mean, it’s pretty much out there already, why not just confirm it so they can stop talking about it. I’d like to get back to having moments with my mans.”

Michael:
**Bzzz**
**Bzzz**
**Bzz**

y/n woke up to her phone exploding with mentions and messages from twitter completely confused.

‘Get your filthy hands off my man’
‘You aren’t even cute, and you think you can date Michal Clifford? Try again.’
‘I can’t believe he’d go for someone like you’
‘Whore’
‘Go kill yourself’

“What the actual fuck?” she muttered before seeing a photo of her and Michael on twitter that had been posted on instagram beforehand.

‘Missing my baby girl @y/i/n.’ It was a picture of her rested in Michael’s lap as they played xbox from when they first hung out. Being beyond pissed was an understatement  as she quickly found her boyfriend’s number hitting the call button not really caring what time it was.

“Hey, ba-,”

“Don’t hey babe me, Michael. Why would you fucking do that without asking me? My phone’s blowing up with hate messages from your fans and I’m completely blindsided by all of this. Why couldn’t you fucking ask me first?” she ranted into the phone clearly upset leaving Michael speechless on the other end of the line. he hadn’t really thought about the outcome of making your relationship public, really just wanting to express his love for you.

“I didn’t think about the consequences, babe…I just wanted you to know I missed you,” he whispered into the phone, y/n instantly feeling regret for having yelled at him. Of course he’d never do it on purpose to hurt her. “I’m so sorry…I can take it down.”

“No, don’t do that. I appreciate the gesture, Mikey…it’s just, we come from two separate worlds, you have to remember that, not that it really matters because our relationship’s out there now, but just for future reference, talk to me first, alright?” she asked looking towards her clock seeing it was only four in the morning instantly regretting calling him knowing she must’ve woken him up. “I’m sorry I woke you.”

“My fans woke you, I should be the one apologizing, babe.”
