I hope you have enjoyed reading ‘The Ideal Team Player’ by Patrick Lencioni. To reinforce and apply what you have learned, please do the following.
Take the self-assessment.Take this assessment to evaluate yourself relative to the three virtues of an ideal team player. Respond as honestly as possible, as this will allow you to identify any areas of development that you may have most accurately. Remember, the purpose of this tool is to help you explore and assess how you embody the three virtues of an ideal team player.
I did my self-assessment and realized that I have work to do! I look forward to doing the assessment again in a few months and will make a concerted effort to improve.
Do the self-ranking exercise.Self-ranking is a great way to rank yourself and share the results with your team. I suggest you do this as a team project.
Fostering an environment of teamwork within your organization is very important. The most reliable way to ensure that teamwork takes hold in your organization is to hire only ideal team players. As leaders in our organizations, we must do our best to recruit, select and hire people who are humble, hungry and smart
According to Patrick, the ideal team player will be Humble, Hungry and Smart.
Ideal team players are humble. They lack excessive ego or concerns about status. Humble people are quick to point out the contributions of others and slow to seek attention for their own. They share credit, emphasize team over self and define success collectively rather than individually.
Ideal team players are hungry. They are always looking for more. More things to do. More to learn. More responsibility to take on. Hungry people almost never have to be pushed by a manager to work harder because they are self-motivated and diligent. They are constantly thinking about the next step and the next opportunity.
Ideal team players are smart. They have common sense about people. Smart people tend to know what is happening in a group situation and how to deal with others in the most effective way. Theyhave good judgment and intuition around the subtleties of group dynamics and the impact of their words and actions.
