Team work and cooperation
Does the person act in such a way as to facilitate the work of the group to which they belong?
Team work and cooperation involve the intention of collaborating and cooperating with others, being part of a group and working together, as opposed to doing it individually or competitively. In order for this skill to be effective, the intention must be genuine. One can always consider that the occupant of the place is a member of a group that works as a team.
