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, hungry colleagues are able to manage conflict, hold peers accountable, and are willing to go above and beyond to get results.

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