What makes someone successful on your team?

There are two strengths I feel drive success for our team - communication, and a willingness to dig into projects. We have a small team making a lot of big decisions, so clear, concise communication is incredibly important to growing the business. Along that same line, we are small enough that everyone is integral to moving projects forward.
