Reputation and Ability

Every team knows who their “go to” person is for certain projects or tasks. Teammates are always aware of who can accomplish a task. Those who are humble enough to acknowledge the need for help will gain much more respect than those who don’t. Those who fake it until they make it will be quickly found out. The team will begin to work around them to make sure the goals of the team are accomplished. This can perpetuate and enable an unskilled teammate to remain that way since they experience little consequence outside of a growing bad reputation they are not aware of.
