Showing up prepared and ready to offer your support is valuable in every team. You, the person on the team, has the responsibility to do your best work and contribute your ideas, intellect and expertise.

Here is a list of to-do items that will make you successful working on project teams.

Project Team Members Role Prior to initial team meeting;

If you hear about a project in your area, and want to get involved; Volunteer.

If you’ve been selected for the project team and you don’t know why, ask prior to the first meeting.

If you haven’t met the team leader, try and establish contact prior to the first meeting.

If you haven’t seen a draft agenda or team charter, ask the team leader if they have one

If you have ideas for the agenda and comments on the draft, send them to the team leader prior to the first meeting

Discuss with your boss the project time commitments and potential conflicts with your “regular job.”

Prior to the meeting, make notes on what you might be able to contribute to the team, the role you might play, your goals and expectations relative to this project, and any concerns you may have. Be ready to share this with the team

Come with an open mind and positive attitude. This will help the team get off to a good start and make it a better experience for you and everyone else.
