Great Teammates: Love to Learn
Great teammates are voraciously curious. They are not satisfied with the tried and true ways of the past. They are not too proud to wonder how another person might accomplish the same thing they are working on. They are not too proud to ask for help when they hit a brick wall and are out of ideas. Ordinary teammates stick to what they know as if they have it all figured out and everyone should be learning from them. A teammate who fails to be curious is likely a liability because time will eventually pass them by. Research is a very underrated skill on a team and should be expected and rewarded because it leads to innovation that keeps the team moving forward instead of going through the same old motions that deliver the same old results.
