I am a great teammate when I say what I mean and mean what I say. If I commit to a task or project, I am going to take the initiative to do my best for the team. Reliability is a key trait for a great teammate because it is the basis for trust in a team dynamic. I joined the team so I could accomplish more by relying on others. Reliability is best demonstrated in the midst of adversity or inconvenience. Reliable teammates do not allow much to knock their part of a project off the top of their priority list. I have found that the key to staying reliable is to keep the important urgent.
