What comes to mind when you hear the words “team building”?

Many of us imagine fun activities that encourage people to work together as a team, but that can bear little relation to our day-to-day work.

These types of team-building exercises can be useful for group introductions, and for “get to know you better” sessions. However, they aren’t always effective, especially in the longer term.

A better option for building an effective team in the long term is to put together a charter that defines the team’s purpose. You can then use this as a basis for all your team-building efforts.

In this Skillbook, we’ll look at how you can create an effective team charter. We’ll explore how to:
  • Define your team’s context and establish its mission and objectives.
  • Combine people’s talents for maximum effectiveness.
  • Plan for resource and support needs.
  • Outline operational expectations.
