CHECK YOUR AGREEMENT REGULARLY. Remember that the way people work will of course change over time. The team agreement is supposed to be a “living document”; Adapt to the team as it evolves. Your team agreement must be regularly reviewed and adapted in the event of a change in operation. This is the right time if you`re hiring new people or someone is leaving the team. Even if things are going well, take the opportunity to review your team agreement again to see if everyone is still on the same page. Hang it on the wall in an important place (or in the digital main area of your remote team`s work area) to remind everyone of what they stand for. When we were all done, we took the opportunity to talk as a team about each detention note. And the things we agreed on were placed in a Google Doc. At first, I remember it was a relatively painless process. There was no real disagreement on something for which we only set the ground rules. What is the expected reaction time? And how to give each other feedback? And what tools would we use to communicate? It is therefore only a fundamental sentence of fundamental rules.
And the idea was that we would evaluate them regularly. Team agreements are sometimes referred to as social contracts. Research shows that social contracts, if properly implemented, have many positive benefits, such as for example. B give employees a sense of control and security in their relationships with their leaders and teammates. These contracts also give a sense of responsibility, responsibility and trust among team members.
