Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

I am a team player.

Being a team player has more to do with my attitude than with the amount of work that I take on. The way I interact with my team is just as important as my contributions.

As a team player, I often have to lay down my ego for the benefit of the team. I am willing to perform tasks that I dislike in order for my team to profit in the end. Pride and arrogance are absent from my attitude.

I am willing to listen to the ideas and input of other team members. When other members of my team have ideas better than my own, I support them whole-heartedly, without jealousy.

Before our meetings, I plan in advance so I can be prepared to participate actively in the discussion. I am on time for meetings in order to send the message to my team that I value their time.

My teammates know that they can count on me because I demonstrate commitment. I value each member of my team and what they bring to the table. People are receptive to me because I respect their individual strengths and weaknesses.

I am courageous enough to admit when I am wrong and ask for help when I need it. I am humble enough to help others when they fall short.

When there is a misunderstanding, I address it promptly without allowing it to fester. I am open-minded and genuine with my teammates.

Today, I choose to be a team player and support those around me because we need each other in order to be successful.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. How can I eliminate bias that I may bring to my team?
2. Do I value the ideas of others as much as my own?
3. What do my timelines and preparation say about me as a team member?
