When to use The Team Canvas?

As a leader or facilitator, you experience moments when you need to bring team members together, clarify their goals, figure out their motivations and help them to be more aligned and productive. Use Team Canvas to start a structured conversation with the team and bring everyone on the same page. Team Canvas works across multiple touch points:

  • creating a team;

  • clarifying goals and addressing overall team performance (e.g. when you feel stuck as a team, or when you need to get a lot of stuff done);

  • growing and onboarding new team members;

  • general alignment sessions (recommended every 2-3 months).

How does The Team Canvas work?

You’ll be guided through 9 key concepts:

  • Purpose: What is the team's purpose: the Why behind your goals? 10 mins

  • People & Roles: What are the names and the roles of each member? 5 mins

  • Common Goals: What are the goals for the whole team? 10 mins

  • Personal Goals: What are individual goals of each team member? 5 mins

  • Values: What are the core values that your share? 10 mins

  • Needs & Expectations: What are your needs and expectation from the team? 10 mins

  • Rules & Activities: What are the ground rules that you want to agree on? How are you going to communicate, make decisions, execute and give feedback? 5 mins

  • Strengths & Assets: What are your strengths: things that would move you forward? 15 mins

  • Weaknesses & Risks: What are your weaknesses: things that would hinder you? 15 mins
