Whether you have new members or seasoned ones, they need to know what is expected of them to get the job done; saving time and future trouble.
This is a relatively easy step that most student groups skip over because we make assumptions. Before developing the timeline and delegating responsibilities, set reasonable expectations and have everyone agree to them. If everyone agrees to them, you can then refer back to them in order to keep members accountable. Here are some good examples of expectations to keep in mind:
- Attend all planning meetings
- Ask questions if you need help
- Be a team member
- Give 100% effort
- Complete your job on time
