Collaborative Teaching: What are the qualities that a teacher needs?

Over the last couple of days I've been fortunate to be able to attend the Making it Mobile workshop in Auckland with Stephen Harris and the team from Northern Beaches Christian School.

One of the discussions centred around the collaborative nature of teaching in open, shared spaces, and the qualities that teachers need in order to thrive in them. So what are those qualities? This is the list that we came up with but feel free to add more thought/ references and ideas.
