Teams that effectively share leadership typically begin by agreeing to a common goal and how it will be achieved. The development of a team charter is an effective way to accomplish this task. Discuss and agree upon the following items:
Define the mission or fundamental purpose of your team.
List and define the shared values that will guide the key behaviors and work values of your team.
Agree upon the shared goal(s) that the team members would to like to achieve as a result of this team project.
List the shared objectives or important milestones that the team must reach in order to achieve its goal(s).
List the shared assignments, identifying who is responsible for completing each task and when each task is due.
Evaluate the progress made on the shared assignments by agreeing upon the performance measures that will be used to gauge progress.
Ensure each team member has an opportunity to contribute to the team charter, provide feedback, and reach consensus on it.
Place your Team Charter into a Word Document.
