Team Rules

Written on

Definition

Team Rules are a set of agreements among all team members that help the team reach optimal performance. Typically, this is a simple, short list of commandments that helps avoid emotional turbulences based on the idea of a common understanding on how to conduct daily business and social interaction.

Good rules avoid finger pointing. Good rules favor understanding the underlying motivation for an expected behavior over giving specific instructions or strict rules (as with Roman Law versus Case Law).
