Ideal team players are individuals who build and facilitate teamwork. They share a blend of three essential virtues—humility, hunger, and people smarts—that enable trust, commitment, and accountability. These colleagues are adept at overcoming the dysfunctions that often derail teams. In particular, humble colleagues do not value status or ego and define success collectively, sharing accomplishments with the entire team.

Learn more about how managers can help employees develop a greater capacity for humility.
