7 Essential Skills for Being a Team Player

If you want to make meaning and change the status quo, it’s not enough to just be on the team. You must also be a team player.

Remember your 6th grade basketball team? Whether you were a starter or second string, A-team or B-team, your position on the team was extremely important.

No matter what your role is in the organization, it is essential to have these skills in order to be successful.

  3. 1. Help teammates win
    Have the back of your teammates. When one person wins, you all win. If
    someone is struggling to meet a deadline or stuck on a problem they just
    cannot solve, jump in and help. Sometimes just an outside perspective can
    get to the solution quicker.

  4. 2. Ingrain trust
    You know those plays where the point guard doesn’t even look at the
    person they are passing to? That’s what you want to do. You want your
    team mates to trust you will be there when it counts.

  5. 3. Inspire each other
    Inspire your teammates to push harder and further. Go out of their
    comfort zone. Do things they didn’t think they were capable of doing.

  7. 5. Work with intensity
    Nothing is more demoralizing than busting your butt while others walk

  8. 6. Are coachable

    listening’s sake – put it into action!

  9. 7. Pass the ball
    No one likes it when one person takes all the credit for the work of a team
    (a ball hog). And if you try to do everything yourself, your chances of
    success dwindle. You need people to help you who have complimentary
    skills, but they will be more likely to help if give them a chance.
