The Flexibility Factor
Great teammates are flexible. They don’t NEED to have things done their way. They recognize their place on the team and make adjustments to make sure the best choice is chosen even if it isn’t their preference. This makes them low-maintenance. Being flexible allows others to focus on the needs of the team in the moment by not demanding the attention be directed at any single individual to gain buy-in or stroke an ego. Flexibility should be a non-negotiable when choosing or recruiting teammates.
