Team Social Contracts are a really important way to get teams on the same page. They help build trust and common understanding.
It’s important to come together as a team to discuss what will and won’t work for each team and what behaviours we will and won’t accept as a team. This activity helps build team trust, familiarity and (crucially) individual accountability.
Time: 30 minutes
Team: 2 – 20
This activity suits small and medium size teams and ensures that we openly set our expectations of one another and then commit to those expectations.
DO THIS WHEN:
- Creating new teams
- Your existing team is having team culture issues / isn’t meshing § Starting a new year (or another regular interval)
- Starting a new project
Includes your large Team Social Contract Poster and detailed Team Social Contract activity facilitator notes.
