 3. Sample     

     In my opinion, important characteristics of a good co-worker are being cooperative, reliable and positive in the team he or she belongs.                               

To begin with, a good co-worker should be cooperative and altruistic as a team member.  In any organization, every operational unit has its goals and every member works in a team.  In order for the team to be efficient and to increase productivity, the team should work collaboratively to make the most of the collective power.  Each member is expected not only to perform his or her own duty but also to help each other to achieve goals before the deadline.  Therefore, being cooperative and altruistic is one of the important characteristics as a co-worker.                                                        

     In addition, reliability should be another crucial characteristic to be a good co-worker.  In a team, every member is assigned a certain specific task to meet the team’s goal.  If a member failed to complete his or her own task, the whole team would also fail to meet its objective.  Under such circumstances, being reliable and responsible for the task is essential as a fellow colleague.  Everyone feels confident that the challenging target could be achievable if the team consists of reliable and responsible members.                                                                                                                                                

     Finally, positive and persistent co-worker would motivate and encourage other teammates, especially when the team is facing tough situations.  In today’s highly competitive environment, it is not easy for workers to stay motivated.  Even so, a co-worker who is always positive and persistent would take the lead in carrying out his or her own duty.  Encouraged by this initiative, other members of the team would follow and team could be aggressive to meet the goal.                                                          

     It is true that such co-worker as I mentioned above is rare species in the real world.  However, in order to become a good co-worker, he or she should be cooperative, reliable, and positive and persistent.
