The Great Teammate

We can misdiagnose someone as a great teammate if they are talented enough to get their job done well. Unfortunately talent has little to do with being a good teammate. A great teammate relates to others on the team well. They put the team’s agenda before their own. They understand that they are a part of a larger whole. They are someone who the rest of the team enjoys working with. In football, there are a ton of super talented athletes that never make a team because their character would be a liability to the team. Who we are as a teammate is always more valuable than what we can do and how well we can do it.
