  Oracle Tips by Burleson


Does the employee work for the good of the team?  Is the workload shared among co-workers? Is the employee willing to assist others, when needed, in fixing problems and just answering questions? Is assistance provided willingly during normal business hours and off-hours? Does the employee participate in team-building events?  Are standards and decisions willingly accepted and implemented to improve support across all team members?

There are usually a few from any IT staff who do not fit into the group, and usually it is of their own accord. They do not willingly work towards a common goal to accomplish the work objectives and in many cases work alone. Their focus is on their work and not the group objectives. The little corner of the world that they see as significant and solely their own masterpiece is what counts in their minds. This thought process excludes cooperation and hurts the team. The group will be less cohesive and members will be less likely to assist others or willing to work together.

Not a Team Player Story

A computer programmer in an organization was not a team-player. His time was allocated only to his own work. He rarely assisted others, and over time people just avoided him. Whenever the call came for someone to cover on-call for another team member, he never volunteered. When people had problems to solve, he never helped out. He also did not always abide by team standards, so his code was harder to debug and document. This behavior was documented.  When this programmer did not work out, he was fired.
