Showing initiative/teamwork

initiative and teamwork are two major themes of most workplace improvement programs; but few realize how powerfully these two concepts can be synergistically intertwined.

If you over hear some one put forth a good idea you should show initiative by going straight to your supervisor and telling them the idea yourself and then implement teamwork by offering to let the person who originally had the idea help you.

If an idea is already being implemented and its too late to initiativize yourself out in front of it, you should practice teamwork by insinuating yourself into the process. Don't worry about whether your help is needed, or whether you're even able to help, the important thing here is that you are practicing teamwork, make sure you get partial if not majority credit for the assignment, because this demonstrtes the concept of teamwork to others.
