Ten Commandments for Teammates

What’s good for the leader is good for the team. A strong leader with weak team, just as a strong team with a weak leader are destined for failure. If the goals and direction are not clear, if the team is not focused and putting sufficient effort towards the goal, it won’t be attained. I was only as good as the teams I managed, and I’d like to think I helped some of them grow. I’ve been very fortunate to have some Superstars and strong players on my teams, but I’ve also had some that did not succeed.

Here’s a list that is not only from a leader’s perspective, but also considers the traits I observed in my Superstars. (You know who you are, too!)

Ten Commandments for Teammates

  1. 1. Ten commandments for teammates
  2. 2. THOU SHALT GIVE THY BEST EFFORTEach DAY Come to play everyday. You owe your employer, your managerand most importantly YOURSELF your complete commitment and focused effort. You will neverknowwhat you arecapable of if you give less than your best.
  3. 3. THOU SHALT LEAVE THINEEGO IN THE PARKING LOT It's notabout YOU. Your company has its goals, which your managerowns a small piece of and gives you your share. TheBig Shots (C-Level leaders) speak the language of RESULTS. That's what matters to them and drama gets in the way of driving results.
  4. 4. LISTEN AND LEARN Part of your commitment is to continue to learn and grow professionally. You do that by listening to yourself, your teammates and your manager (remember,your manager has a responsibility to support and foster your growth).
  5. 5. THOU SHALT SPEAK Don't sit silently in a team meeting. Contribute and share your observations. Pay attention tothe SecondCommandment and share your challenges. Problems will persist if you keepthem to yourself. Throw it out there, put some groupthink against it and develop solutions.
  6. 6. THOU SHALT SHARE Nobody has a monopoly ongood ideas. Don't keepyours to yourself; sharethem. Being a contributing teammate is just like networking - it's what you GIVE to your network that determines what you GET from it.
  7. 7. STAY OPEN FOR BUSINESS Remain open-minded (Second Commandment) to coachingfrom your manager, ideas your teammates may shareor for things you hearorread. (Seventh Commandment) If you allow yourself to feel threatened by any of this, you close yourself off to learning and may be driving your careeroff a cliff.
  8. 8. INVEST IN YOURSELF Don't rely on your job, manager and teammates for your professional development. Opportunities for learning are EVERYWHERE - blogs, LinkedIn Groups, and limitless websites and e-zines. Commit yourself to continuous learning and you'll accelerate your professional development, success and earnings.
  9. 9. WATCH YOUR METRICS Don't bedismissive about your activity, goal orother metrics. You may not beready to embrace them, but acceptand understand them as the diagnostic tools they are. Your manager should help you to analyze them and what actions to take to movethe needle in the right direction.
  10. 10. CHEER AND BE HUMBLE Celebrate and praise thevictories of yourteammates, and accepttheir praise gracefully. Take your Victory Lap in private, especially if you're nearthe top of the stack rank. Lifting others when they are down will berewarded with loyalty and returned support when you need it. And you will.
  11. 11. LIFE MATTERS MORE In theend, a jobis a job – a means to support the life you want tolive. If everthe job is negatively impacting that life, or fails to support it; you should consider a change. Whether a change of job orfield, don’t settle for the status quo. You only get one life and you deserve to behappy in it.
