Why has the Team been set up and what are we supposed to be doing?

ALL Team members need to know what their individual and collective Objectives are – otherwise nothing gets achieved.

On the occasions that teams don’t function well, it’s often because there is a lack of communication and understanding about what the group’s Objectives are.

If you want to be a good team player, make sure you understand the group’s goals. Ask key questions like these:

  • Why are we here?
  • What is the ‘perfect ending’ to this project?
  • What is our deadline?
  • How often will we meet?
  • What is our budget?
  • Who is in charge of implementing our ideas?
  • What roles and responsibilities will each of us have?

Be clear about what you’re there to do. This will help you complete your tasks to the best of your abilities.

Good Luck!
