If you are a manager, you need to find the best team players for your Scottsdale Arizona business and invest in Scottsdale team building exercises to keep the team strong. If you are an employee, you should evaluate your own qualities to understand if you are a good team player and are doing everything you can to help your company and fellow workers succeed.
Here are a few things to consider to determine if you are a good team player:
Do You Communicate Effectively?
Good communication is key to being a good team player. You need to be able to communicate your ideas clearly, directly, honestly and respectfully. You should not shy away from suggesting ideas or dealing with problems. You should be able to speak confidently while also respecting the ideas and feelings of others on the team.
Effective communication also involves good listening skills. You must be able to really listen to your co-workers and to contribute to the conversation in a constructive way.
Are You Flexible?
Anything can happen on a project. A client may put in a last-minute request that seriously impacts your ability to meet deadline. Your boss may tell you that there’s no budget for what you had planned for a project, causing you to have to come up with an entirely new plan. You need to be flexible to come up with new ideas on the spot and to work with team members on constructive problem-solving.
To be flexible, you also need to be open-minded about potential solutions. If you shut down ideas before even trying them, you could be limiting opportunities for innovation.
Are You Committed to the Team?
Good team players are genuinely committed to the team and will always display a willingness to do more than is required. To help your Scottsdale team succeed, you’ll need to really understand the objectives and goals of the team. That loops back to good communication with your team. That means active listening during meetings, asking insightful questions of your manager, and brainstorming about ways to finish a project.
If you are committed to the team, you will be a reliable team member who others can count on to be there and to always be ready to pitch in with solutions.
