问：How can a person become a good member of a team in the workplace? ／一个人如何在职场成为优秀的团队成员？（2020年1-4月雅思口语Part3 新题）3条参考回答如下（来自专业外教原创）：
I think first you need to make sure you're taking care of your own duties, nothing is more annoying than picking up the slack of person that's not putting in any effort.
Once you're able to manage that then providing support for the other members would not just improve your status in the eye of the group but also boost the efficiency of the team as a whole.
A great team player is constantly reliable day in and day out, not just some of the time. You can count on them to get the job done, meet deadlines, keep their word and provide consistent quality work.
Great team players communicate their ideas honestly and clearly and respect the views and opinions of others on the team. Great team players take the time to make positive work relationships with other team members a priority and display a genuine passion and commitment toward their team.
To become an invaluable team member in the workforce, you must always consider the team goals above all else. Your character is also an important aspect, being amicable while being able to display your thoughts in a reasonable manner is a great skill to have.
In the case of close quarters working, something that is sensitive but needs to be addressed is personal hygiene. Nobody wants to work with someone when they have to pinch their nose to be next to them. If you follow these simple steps, then you will be a great team member.
