Let's Start Out RIGHT, Week 3
During team formation is the best time to work collaboratively to develop a philosophy about how work is going to be done, expectations and boundaries of social expression, and standards that all agree each personnel will follow. The depth of the rules can be defined BY the team, FOR the team. By completing the rules together, all members of the team have a clear understanding of how behavior, decorum, and tone will be interpreted. Of equal benefit, a person new to the team can be easily oriented using the agreed-upon language and defined standards.
