Choosing just one is hard and it really depends on what role they fill. But a critical trait for anyone I work with: high ethical standards. Naval articulates why this is so important in this 3 minute podcast.

Hmm tough one - empathy is my fave but if I had to choose another I'd have to say clear, honest communication.

Empathy is such a good one! Work ethic is a quality I value hugely in my teammates. Being surrounded by people working hard always encourages me to do more of my best work. Great question!
