Two things I think about a lot when I think about what makes a good teammate is great listening skills and a sense of empathy.

When I think about the great managers I've worked with, they always took the perspective of "how do I serve my staff so they can do their jobs well," rather than thinking of everyone they manage as serving them. So I guess I'd include "humility," too.
