10 Questions Your Team Should Ask*

"Is your team on track?"

That's a question every team should be asking itself periodically. The following ten questions can serve as a starting point in a team-evaluation. For team members to maintain anonymity, the questions can be answered on paper and typed up together on a master sheet without attribution. Then, at a special team-development meeting, the collected answers can be discussed and corrective action taken.

Here are the questions:

1. Do we trust each other?
2. Are we genuinely interested and concerned for each other?
3. Do we feel free to communicate openly?
4. Do we understand our team's goals?
5. Do we have a real commitment to these goals?
6. Do we make good use of all our abilities?
7. Do we handle conflict successfully?
8. Does everyone participate?
9. Do we respect our individual differences?
10. Do we enjoy being members of this team?

Will Rogers said it best... "you may be on the right track, but if you don't move on, you will eventually get hit by a train."
