Be always reliable

Totally reliable members are like gold. Delivering work on time every time is priceless.

A good team player is not fearful of failure.

Head hunters are now actively seeking out those employees who can clearly recount what went wrong with a project and what lessons they learned.

Share information

A good team member doesn't regard other team members with suspicion, envy or resentment.

They understand that sharing information is vital to efficient problem solving.

A good team player will be able to ask questions and also make suggestions in a constructive manner.

Good team players know instinctively that everybody should have their say and that there is no need to monopolize a meeting.

Great team players keep each other's negative tendencies in check. They balance each other so that the total is greater than the sum of the parts.

Understand team dynamics

Introverts will have a different working style and they will hate team-building exercises. The good team player recognizes this and does not see it as a negative factor.

The good team player knows when to say no in spite of pressures from management to take on too much. They can say no beautifully and still be a committed and loyal colleague.

You can spot a great team player a mile away. He or she is the one who rarely dwells on a problem or seeks to blame circumstances and other people.

They make an effort to resolve the issue and involve the team members as well.

Good team players will rarely sit passively in their comfort zones. They understand that there may be an element of taking risks but are not terrified of failing. They are always willing to learn lessons and move on.
