31. The Ideal Team Player - Part 1

What does it look like to be an Ideal Team Player? We all bring different strengths and skills to an organization, but how can you build a team that works in alignment AND complements each other? 

Patrick Lencioni at The Table Group built a tool that helps you evaluate where you fall on the Venn diagram of Humble + Hungry + Smart.

We define "humility" a bit differently: It's not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less (C.S. Lewis). It's not just about avoiding pride or arrogance; it's also not about being self-deprecating or having a lack of confidence. 

"Hungry" is about being eager to work hard and strive for excellence... within the context of healthy boundaries. It's not really about being a workaholic or working so hard to get credit for the effort you put in. 

"Smart" is more about being emotionally intelligent and attuned to the thoughts and feelings of others than it is about being intellectually smart. 

Join us for part 1 of 2 episodes where Anna and Jill discuss The Ideal Team Player, how the tool is leveraged at Accrew, what it looks like in action, and how it's affected the way they work with team members and clients alike!
