“Are we a Team?” checklist

I like this a lot. Sharing with the class in case it can be of help or interest.

I’d also love to hear reactions in the comments! Do these seem like good principles to you? Why or why not? Are there any with which you particularly agree or disagree?

“Are We a Team?” checklist (Levin & Kent, 2001)

Check off the statements that accurately represent your group. Be prepared to discuss your choices afterwards with your group. Also consider ways to improve your group’s functioning, especially as it relates to the statements you did not check off.

  • We all show equal commitment to our objective.
  • We all take part in deciding how work should be allocated.
  • We are committed to helping each other learn.
  • We acknowledge good contributions from team members.
  • We handle disagreements and conflicts constructively within the team.
  • We are able to give constructive criticism to one another and to accept it ourselves.
  • We all turn up to meetings and stay to the end.
  • We are good at making sure that everyone knows what’s going on.
  • When one of us is under pressure, others offer to help him or her.
  • We trust each other.
  • We remain united even when we disagree.
  • We support each other to outsiders.
  • We feel comfortable and relaxed with one another.

    Thanks a lot for this resource Hannah. I like it a lot and intend to share it with my Engineering students at City College when we break the class up into teams a couple of weeks from now.
