Team Chartering: What Is It and Why Do It?
Please review this document prior:
Short Summary: How many times have you worked with a team or in a partnership and realized only in retrospect all the ways you might have reached better outcomes? What might your experience have been like if you had taken the time for more planning up front? What are the best experiences you have had in teams or groups and what are the most difficult? In thinking through the differences, how much more mission and role clarity was there on the successful teams? This session will offer a stellar, proactive tool for team development called a team charter. Team Chartering is an iterative process that can be used in any setting with teams of 2 to 100 +. Using this tool, you will sort through team mission and vision, communication and conflict styles, strengths and areas and growth, roles, feedback preferences and more to create conditions for best individual and team outcome.
