Characteristics of Good Team Members

We must learn that we don't work alone no matter what business.  There are always others like partners, investors, employees, suppliers, customers, creditors, and others.  We must learn to work together if a business is to survive and thrive.  Here are some qualities to have in a good team member:

  1. Commitment - People should be dedicated to goals that the team has set.
  2. Competency - Each team member needs to have the skills necessary to accomplish the task and if not, should be ready to get the necessary skills.
  3. Communication - Team members should be ready to talk and share ideas with others.
  4. Cooperation - The ability to compromise and know they will not always get their own way in every decision is vital.
  5. Creativity - Thinking outside the box is crucial.  Team members should contribute by suggesting creative ideas to solutions to problems in the business.
