A successful team is one in which everyone pulls their weight to create the best possible results. The strong qualities that team members need to have can be nurtured through encouragement and growth, but they should also be existing innately. Every one of these three characteristics should be exhibited by all of your team members.
Truly admirable people aren't the ones who get everything right on their first try. They're the ones who, even if they make mistakes the first time, refuse to give up. They're enthusiastic about every part of the process and are willing to accept criticism. Dedication isn't something that can be faked. You can assemble a quality team by considering how each member has shown their dedication in the past. Whether it's coming to work early or pitching in to complete projects that others were struggling with, dedication means give things your all as much as you can. When you have a team full of dedicated individuals, everyone can feel all the more inspired.
Attentive to Detail
Team members need to be able to think in the big and small picture. Attention to detail is crucial because it shows who's going to be able to catch issues before they can really spread. Before ultimately deciding who you want as your teammate, test them to determine their level of attention to detail. You could present them with a document that needs to be edited or software with glitches that need to be fixed. These should be subtle enough to require a particularly well-trained eye to catch. The more attention to detail your team has, the more you can see effective results.
Great team members say what they mean and mean what they say. They won't try to use manipulative tactics to sabotage other teammates. When they make a mistake, they'll own up to it. When choosing people for your team, ask them to describe things like loyalty in their own words. See how it compares with what your definitions are. This should help you with making your final decision.
Think of great sports teams of the past. How did the players come together to bring their talents into one cohesive whole? There needs to be cooperation, but there also needs to be individual determination and strength. When you multiply these qualities across your whole team, you end up with a team you can be proud of.
