      1st Answer Example

      "I appreciate so many things about the people who make up the teams I work with, but there are three attributes that I find to be valuable on a regular basis. First, I appreciate working with team members who are empathetic. Having the ability to connect properly with other members of the team, stakeholders, and with customers is beneficial. It helps build value into everything we do as a team, and it bridges individuals together.

      Secondly, I appreciate team members who are accountable and take pride in their work. I find that people who place importance on doing their job well and getting things right as much as possible help to set the bar high for others. They lead by example and inspire the team. They inspire me.

      Finally, I appreciate team members that have gifts that are complementary to my own. I believe in identifying what people are truly great at and finding ways to leverage those strengths to the fullest. The most high-performance teams I have worked with have a mix of gifts that balance each other. I find I learn a lot, and the products that are developed are higher quality."
