Team Communication

Tally sheets might help your team
There is a simple tool to let your team reflect on their communication. It might help you, if there is somebody on your team who talks very much and some people who remain mostly silent. The tool is: a sheet of paper and a pencil. Just participate on a teams meeting, search a quiet corner and make a tally sheet of who in the team spoke how often. After the meeting is over, offer the team to share your observations and let the team decide, what to make of this observation. Maybe a very healthy discussion will follow...
If there is no discussion coming up, there is eventually no problem with this fact or the team is not ready to tackle this at the moment. You might try it some time later again.
