Reputation and Availability
There is no ability like availability. It doesn’t matter how skilled I am as a teammate if I cannot participate in the team projects. Participation can look different in different team contexts. On a sports team, participation includes showing up to practice on time, every time a practice is scheduled. It also includes being ready for the game. Being academically eligible is important on school sports teams. In other contexts it includes showing up to your job on time, every time.
