1. The Open-Minded Manager

You develop a sense of empowerment and accountability within the team as you are open to new ideas, which leads to confidence in your team members. You don’t mind trial-and-error, so you still intervene when necessary to give a helping hand. As a flexible and open-minded manager, it creates an opportunity to use new ways of thinking, which greatly benefits the company. However, an open-minded manager can lead to gossip, where some employees may view “open-minded” as weakness, as you won’t give directions for them that might weaken their confidence.

2. The Coach

Any instruction that lasts longer than 10 seconds is coaching. To be a good coach, you don’t have to be an expert in the field, you just need to want to help someone achieve their goal. You are especially patient and concerned with helping others. As a coach, you are fundamentally concerned with the development of their goals and help them achieve them by setting learning opportunities and give them chances to work with different people. However, a coach is not a must for being a great boss, scroll down to find out the 10 personality traits of a great boss.

3. The Problem-Solving Manager

You are a task-driven boss, who focuses a lot on achieving goals. You have a big picture thinking ability, where you can assess the business and commercial impact of issues or challenges that might arise and react in an appropriate action. Of course, when your employees encounter obstacles and difficulties, you are willing to help them. As you have a high critical thinking ability, you think broadly and rigorously about issues and challenges which lead to your best solution.

Are you a good team player?

You want to know if you are a team player? Make our quiz and find out what type of team player you are.

Personality test

1. The Team Player (You love to be part of a team)

Congratulations! You’ve definitely got what it takes to shine while you’re helping other people out. You don't just look out for yourself, you also try to see what's best for your company. Things would definitely fall apart without team players like you around to keep the group running smoothly. Kind, patient, and usually very responsible, you make sure that other people are feeling as good as you do. Of course you like to get credit when you succeed (who doesn’t?) you’re just more likely to take the time to make sure that everyone is doing well. Working with a team can be tough sometimes, but you’re tougher. Way to go!

2. The Captain (You like to lead a team)

Captain or Boss? It doesn’t matter exactly what they’re saying as long as they’re calling you the head of the team, right? You’re much more likely to work hard to get the credit, not just to be part of a crowd. Of course you’re still a people person — you can’t lead well if you aren’t well liked, right? — you would probably just rather stand out and make a good example of yourself. Just remember that knowing how to be a team player from time to time is a key part of success and go for it!

3. The Lonely Warrior (You prefer to work on your own)

You know how to get your work done but you don’t need a team for it. That’s okay too. You don’t need to discuss every task in detail with everybody. We totally understand that! And you are right. For a lot of jobs, teamwork is not vital. But teamwork helps to get new ideas and to see things from a different perspective. You should start finding the right team for youself and you’ll be surprised how efficient teamwork can be. You don’t need to include teamwork on a regular basis but sometimes teamwork can work miracles. We are sure that you could be a great team player!

Good Job! You found out what type of team player you are. But why is it so important to work in a team? Keep reading to be aware of the importance of teamwork.
