Passionate teammates demonstrate their willingness to sacrifice their convenience for the cause of the team. It is likely what attracted them to join our team. A passionate teammate operating in their area of passion will not need much motivation. They will mostly need direction and encouragement. One of the best personal tests of my current state of passion for my role on a team is to check whether I am looking forward to the weekend on Monday morning. Am I always looking for a way out? It’s great to enjoy rest but when we are in a passionate wheelhouse, we can’t get home or to our job fast enough because we love both.
