Thrive Series: Team Toolkit: Team Charter Guidelines

Team purpose

"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much."

Helen Keller

A team charter is a "roadmap to success" that team members create together. It is where they set down their shared understanding of how the team can work most effectively together, and bring clarity to team direction, roles and responsibilities. The charter is valuable at the beginning of a team's journey and at any time a guidepost is needed in the face of challenges.
