What Kind of Teammate Are You?

The best answer to that question comes from your actual team mates.

Do your team mates know you have their back or do they know you will do anything to make sure your part succeeds even at their expense?

How do you talk about them when they are not around? How does that affect the teammates that hear those conversations? Would they want you to talk about them to someone else the same way?

How do you handle failure? Do you “fix” the failure by eradicating it? Do you work harder to place blame rather than find a solution together?

Do you coach and encourage a struggling teammate or do you label them and seek to work around them?

All of the answers to these questions are public knowledge within a team. Everyone knows who they can rely on and who they can’t.
