Group = more than self by ProQuest

VIEWS: 3 PAGES: 2

In business, much has been written in the past decade about the power of teams in business. Developing a better team always begins with YOU. Your God-given ability may be out of your control, but the ability to work in a team is not. All people can choose to become better teammates. John Maxwell explains that ultimately a team is simply a collection of people. The challenge for each individual -each team member- is to become to the kind of person that can maximise his/her contribution and push the team forward to fulfil its mission. He gives 17 essential qualities of a team player that guide you to improve your value as a team member: 1. Adaptable, 2. Collaborative, 3. Committed, 4. Communicative, 5. Competent, 6. Dependable, 7. Disciplined, 8. Enlarging, 9. Enthusiastic, 10. Intentional, 11. Mission Conscious, 12. Prepared, 13. Relational, 14. Self-improving, 15. Selfless, 16. Solution oriented, and 17. Never Quit.
