What You Need to Be a Great Team Player

Updated: Dec 28, 2020

Everyone may have acquired the knowledge and technical skills for work to be done. What do leaders want from their team and what can make a team player outstanding in the workplace?

Listen Actively

Practice active listening. Pay attention to the conversation, without interrupting. Instead of disagreeing with any of your team member’s ideas right away, try to consider from their point of view. Respect the ideas and viewpoints of other people.


Adapt to ever-changing situations. Avoid complaining or stressing out when the team is working in a new or different direction. Remember to firm in your thoughts but still open to what others have to offer. Readily accept any tasks delegated to you and look at it as an opportunity to learn.
