The purpose of this study was to explore and quantify 3 qualities of team players using Patrick Lencioni’s framework for the Ideal Team Player by examining drive or motivation to achieve (hungry), emotional intelligence and interpersonal relationship skills (smart), and humility (humble). The relationship between the 3 qualities and team ratings of participant leadership effectiveness and competence, as well as likelihood for career derailment and career-stalling problems, were also examined.
This was an exploratory, correlational design that involved secondary data analyses of a large dataset using a 5-step hierarchical regression analysis. Deidentified participant data were collected through random selection by means of a data request from the Center for Creative Leadership’s participant database.
The results showed that while Hungry was a statistically significant predictor of Boss Ratings of a team member/manager’s effectiveness and the Team’s ratings of Competence, Smart and Humble were not. While there was statistical significance for Hungry, there were not for Humble and Smart, indicating some limitations to the study design.
In practice, the results of the study provide a valuable framework for improving teamwork through team development interventions applied at the individual and the group level and can be applied to Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice at the pre- and in-service level.
This is the first study to explore humility, emotional intelligence, drive, and motivation together in relation to performance ratings and to translate the findings into practical application for the healthcare industry.
