Good job on this Tirrell. I was emphasizing the need for Team Working agreements to some teams I'm coaching and used your article as an example for some guidelines for them to consider when putting their agreements together. Thanks!

This was a fantastic article, for some reason, it isn't showing up anymore. I am not sure if it is on my end or not, did this move?

I adore this infographic, and working agreements are an oft-neglected topic on teams. Establishing ground rules helps teams run smoother. Well done!
