Please give an example when you have worked well as part of a team?

I would like someone to give me an example, out of his own personal experience, on how he was more productive when he was working with a team, and how the presence of a team charter positively affected his productivity and his integration within the team.

Are you talking about me as a project manager or me as a developer? Because you can be part of the team and, of course, a team player even if you are a project manager.

In any case, I remember several years ago, when I was a developer, we were working under this great project manager: conflicts were only a few and were solved on the spot, team motivation was really high, and we were finishing things fast. I think it all had to do with how the project manager managed the project, he didn't micromanage yet he didn't leave us by ourselves, he was there to help, and he was always monitoring things in the background.

I remember back then we had a team charter (see an example of a team charter here: http://www.projectmanagementquestions.com/2216/give-me-an-example-of-a-team-charter ) and it helped us a lot in knowing our roles and responsibilities on the project. The team charter was also very handy because it defined how communication worked between us (the team members).

I think I gave more than 100% of my energy on this project, and I was always motivated, and so were all the other team members.
