3. Developing a Team Charter

When engaging in a group or team-based project, a good place to start after your initial icebreaker activity is to draw up a team charter together. You can use the team charter template provided below to identify your team goals, get to know your team member’s strengths and working styles, clarify roles and responsibilities, determine timelines, and set some ground rules to reach a shared understanding. Having a team charter helps remove any confusion around expectations when working with others and provides clarity about how your team will work to achieve its goals.
