Independent-Team player

Being an independent-team player describe an individual's capability to perform effectively within a differentiated group of people, when solving all kinds of problems. Acting independently implies an ability (i.e. specialized knowledge) to resolve your particular segment of the problem (individual responsibility) in such a manner that the group or team (i.e. different specialists) can all benefit from your contribution (group accountability). Thus, being an Independent-Team player, implies a competency to independently address and solve a particular or specialist problem, within a situational interdependent context. An independent-team player should always be seen in parallel with being a generalist-specialist.
