Align your team through co-creation of a team charter
"A team is more than a group of people working together. A team is a group of people who trust each other." (Simon Sinek, author)
Every team manager knows trust doesn't come out of the blue. Trust grows out of striving for the same goal, setting common expectations, clearly defining everyone's role and finally, of course, keeping the agreements made. Logical one would think, and yet these crucial conditions often remain undiscussed or invisible and many teams work according to habits that have not been clearly agreed upon.
Changing these fixed and unspoken habits is not an easy task, but it is possible, provided it is tackled consciously. As a manager, it is crucial not to come up with the answers yourself or impose team principles, but to create space for dialogue and facilitate the process. As a manager you can of course suggest elements, but make sure that your team members are listened to first.
To support this process we have developed TeamLiner®, an effective and above all practical tool for managers and process facilitators to use:
when starting up a new team, for example as part of a change or innovation process
for aligning the members of an existing team, when there is a need for clear agreements or when a new manager or team member joins the team
for adjusting teamwork when there are uncertainties or conflicts around cooperation
By thinking together as a team about your team principles you immediately create an enormous support base. Because when people are invited to help shape their own objectives and rules, working on change or innovation suddenly becomes a lot easier.
