Look first at assumptions about people and teams, then discuss opinions and finally work out the ground-rules or protocols for the team.
Ask team members to read each statement on attached Worksheet and mark whether they agree (A) or disagree (D).
If the team is together:
- Rules that are commonly agreed
- Areas of disagreement and why
If the team is not together an alternative method is to:
Get a copy of the agreed ground-rules to everyone.
Put up a big version of the ground-rules whenever the team meets.
