As day-to-day pressures build and challenges arise, the charter serves as a map that keeps the team on course and focused on the end result.
Creating a team charter is one of the most powerful ways a team can make sure it is on the right track and that everyone is committed to the important work of the team. A team charter is a set of agreements that clearly states what the team wants to accomplish, why it is important, and how the team will work together. As day-to-day pressures build and challenges arise, the charter serves as a map that keeps the team on course and focused on the end result.
Why not take a step in the right direction? Using the chartering process, teams clarify their purpose and values, develop goals and strategies to accomplish their tasks, and create a contract that captures the common understanding. The Team Charter Process Kit includes a leader's guide and eight team member workbooks that can be completed in one to two days, or longer, depending on the complexity of the team's purpose.
A final section guides team members through the execution and distribution of a team charter that will drive momentum and keeps the team focused on results.
