Most people think being a good teammate is to help out others on the team. That is just half of it.

No one in sports thinks a ball hog – someone who once given the ball tries everything in their power to score themself and never passes to anyone else – is a good teammate. Yes, helping others is good but you must also be willing to ask for help yourself. If you do not utilize the skills and knowledge on your team, then what is the point of you being on the team? Just so that they can benefit from your brilliance?

 Even when you do not necessarily need help, it is always good to get a second opinion or bounce an idea or two. By using your team, it becomes a better team.
