Be the team MVP

in Office Politics,Workplace Communication

What is the most important characteristic of a good team player? According to a recent survey by Accountemps:

Meeting deadlines      40%

Avoiding politics      25%

Being pleasant to work with      20%

Supporting managers      13%

The firm offers up a few tips for being your work team’s most valuable player:

Keep your eye on the ball. Prioritize projects so you spend the majority of your time on activities that most directly affect the bottom line, rather than easy to-do’s.

Take one for the team. Don’t play the blame game if something goes awry. Instead, focus on correcting the problem.

Play fair. Give credit where it is due, and be generous in your praise.

Avoid throwing curve balls. Engage in open communication to minimize office politics and foster an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect.
