Great things to say and hear

In a conversation with a colleague, we were talking about the ways one would know that someone would be a valuable team member.

Among other things, we agreed that the following would be powerful indicators of the team member we would like work with — and be ourselves.

We/they would say (in no particular order):

  1. “What if …?”
  2. “This stinks — and here’s what we might try to make it better”
  3. “I screwed that up royally — and here is what I learned …”
  4. “Let me show you …”
  5. “I’m curious …”
  6. “I could use your help”
  7. “Great job!”
  8. “Thank you.”

What other statements should we add to the list?
