Developing Your Team Charter
Is your team struggling to perform because there are no clear guidelines, processes or behavioural norms in place to guide operations?
The answer could mean the difference between a team that performs well together and a group of people who happen to work in the same department.
A Team Charter is much like the foundation of a building, upon which a healthy team can be constructed.“Developing Your Team Charter” guides you through the process of identifying the team’s overall purpose and values. Designed as team exercises, the resulting documents provide clarity, focus, and inspiration. Each member of your team will understand how the group provides value and how problems will be handled as they arise. It begins by preparing your team to engage fully, rather than viewing the Team Charter as just one more flavour-of-the-day management fad.
