5 Tips for Working on a Creative Team

Steve Berman | ArtBistro

5. Be Positive

Nobody wants to work with negative people, especially those who put others down or complain constantly about work that needs to be done. On the other hand, people who listen, dish out compliments, and contribute to a positive atmosphere make things easier and more fun for everybody.

Being courteous, working hard, providing strong contributions all factor into a positive demeanor at work. The thing is, there’s no magical answer to how to work on a team, and it shouldn’t be so foreign because anybody who’s been in a musical group, played sports, or even just been a part of a family knows what it’s like to be a valued team member. Working on a team isn’t all that much different than working alone; it’s just that you don’t have to focus on everything. And really, isn’t that the biggest advantage?
