A Team Player is a person who plays or works well as a member of a team or group. The six characteristics of a good team player are; you understand your role, you welcome collaboration, you hold yourself accountable, you are flexible, you commit to the team, and you have a positive attitude!

So if the first mate of the Titanic exhibited all of these qualities does that make him a good team player when the end result of his actions was that his team all ended up on the bottom of the Atlantic? Or was he just a great subordinate for following his bosses orders? Does getting the best result for the whole team factor into any of this at all?

And that is all I’m going to say about that!
