Competent team players are “well qualified, fit.” They are capable and highly qualified to do the job well. Being competent is another essential quality of team players.
We are writing about those qualities from John Maxwell’s book, “The 17 Essential Qualities of a Team Player.” If you are wondering how you measure when it comes to being competent, here are some of the criteria he mentions competent team players have in common:
- They are committed to excellence.
- They never settle for average.
- The pay attention to detail.
- They perform with consistency.
If you aren’t as competent as you would like to be — not to worry! There are things you can do to improve. For example, getting more focused in the area you want to grow. Many people are a jack of all trades but a master of none. Focus in and work on developing competence in a specific area you want to grow and achieve in.
Not sure what to do? Think about your gifts, talents, skill-sets and natural abilities. How can you pull all of those things into one or two areas of competence?
Competent people also pay attention to the details and they are good at moving ideas from the thinking phase to the implementation phase. They act on the ideas and put them into practice.
