Be a Team Player

So you want to be admired and respected for your skills in the workplace? The best way to do that is by becoming the ultimate team player. When co-workers feel that they can count on you it opens up the door to more work in the future, possible salary increases, and viable promotions. Let's take a look at what it means to be a team player at work.

First of all, say yes whenever possible. The kind of attitude that is emblematic of a team player is the never say 'no' attitude. Always be willing to go the extra mile whether it means staying late or coming in early.

Second of all, be efficient. When it comes to the workplace you have to realize that nothing is more important than efficiency. If you can do a job in half the time it was expected in, and still maintain quality, you will go far. So always be focused on the best ways to get things done. Your boss and coworkers will appreciate your effort.

And lastly, if you see other people on your team struggling to get work done, ask if you can help. Pitch in when needed. Volunteer to take on more projects. These tactics will make you a valuable member of any team.
