Key to Identifying a TEAM member, based on "The Ideal Team Member" by Patrick Lencioni
Cohesive TEAMS, the NEXT advantage for Enterprise Leadership
The day of the Solo-preneur is like a dinosaur, extinct. This is the WHY we must have an advantage in the marketplace and learn how to identify REAL leaders, leaders who are AUTHENTIC.
Another way to put it, “The days of the solitary genius are gone. Many of the inspiring innovations produced recently have been developed by teams of talented people – the Apple iPhone, Pixar’s film Up! and even Wikipedia.” (The Ideal Team Player, Patrick Lencioni)

The Ideal TEAM Member Virtues;
Passion - Hunger
An ideal team member is a hungry worker or an individual who wants to do more than is necessary.
The first virtue of a team player is hunger. Hungry potential employees are always in search of more: more achievement, more learning and more responsibility. These types of people do way more than what is expected because they’re driven and passionate about their work.
Trust - Socially Smart
Great team players have social smarts, because people who “get along” work more effectively.
Smart refers to a person’s capacity for interpersonal awareness – that is, their ability to act appropriately in a range of scenarios and understand both group dynamics and individual personalities.
Character - Humble
Great team players are humble, putting the team’s needs and goals before their own.
These team players don’t pay too much attention to status or ego, focusing instead on the welfare of the team as a whole.
Every team to achieve optimal achievement will be smart to measure their success with the kinds of metrics that promote forward growth, see the Portacle™ Virtue Orb.
“Every team player has three virtues: a hunger to go above and beyond PASSION the social smarts to interact positively with a group TRUST and the humility CHARACTER to subsume the ego for the team’s common good. If even one of these traits is lacking in a single team member, your whole team will suffer.”
