The following are our top tips for functioning as a great team player in any context, be it sports, school, or work.
Be Loyal to Those Not Present – No one likes to be talked about behind their back and we should not tolerate people talking bad about others in our presence.
Do More Than Your Fair Share – We all appreciate working with someone that doesn’t say, “That’s not my job.” Develop a reputation for being someone that will do whatever it takes to get the job done.
Be Dependable – Get in the habit of being where you are supposed to be, when you are supposed to be there, and ready to do the job.
Anticipate Your Partner’s Next Move – Good teammates rarely need to tell the person what to do next because their partner is already doing it.
Be Flexible – Sometimes it is okay to do it someone else’s way.
Practice Non-Judgment – We are all different, with varied strengths and weaknesses. Being judgmental undermines individuals. Avoid at all costs!
Pick Your Battles – Pope John XXIII says, “See Everything, Overlook A Lot, Correct A Little.” If you always have to be right, people will tend to resent you and be resistant to your ideas.
When At Work, Put Your Game Face On – We all have personal challenges that we deal with on a regular basis, but when you get to work, leave them at the door.
