I think of a good team player as being like a member of an orchestra. Ideally,
every person in the orchestra is an expert in playing their instrument. Every
instrument has its role and its time to perform. For the team (orchestra) to
work well, every member must do their job and do it well, at the exact time
they are needed or required. Note also that every orchestra needs a conductor,
or leader - a person who keeps the team in precise step.

It's a pleasure to perform in an orchestra. It's also nice if there is an
audience to clap when it's all done. <smile>
