What are the desirable traits for a Volunteer?

A management workshop, based on Harvard business school techniques, divided 110 people into eleven groups of ten people each. The groups were asked to list all of the attributes that came to mind. After a period of time they were told to stop writing lists and vote on their top eight. Then all eleven groups combined their results into the following top eight attributes:

    1. Reliability.
    2. Participation.
    3. Being a team player.
    4. Dedication and commitment.
    5. Ability to cooperate.
    6. Acceptance of responsibility.
    7. Support; speaks well of his/her organization before others.
    8. A success in his/her vocation.

Those are the top eight that beat out all others. What others might you add? This can be a good discussion at any organizational meeting.
