Every team should have certain non-negotiables. These are attributes that every teammate must possess to be on be team. The best place to start when putting the list together is to look at the team values. Everyone on the team must emulate those team values. Is someone really on a team if they don’t choose to belong by valuing what the rest of the team values? This is why it’s important to find people that consider the team and what it stands for valuable rather than rushing to fill a vacancy. When we do that, we prove that our top value is simply filling vacancies quickly. That’s a lame value.
