About the intervention
Punish bad behaviour by paying a fine into a virtual swear jar, that can later be spent on a treat or celebration for the whole team.
How to set it up.
Define punishable behaviour with your teammates e.g. being late to meetings, or missing deadlines
Download a swear jar app such as 'Swear Jar Pro' on the App Store to keep track of your teammates' bad deeds
At the end of the project, everyone pays into a pot. This can simply be a bank transfer into someone's personal account to spend on a group activity.
What to do during.
One person, ideally the Team Leader or Operations Officer should be leading this activity i.e. managing the swear jar. to make sure it is fair for everyone
The team should have a discussion about expectations early on in the project timeline. Discuss what you find acceptable/unacceptable, share your method of working, your daily schedules and personal goals
A significant amount should be fined in order to ensure everyone takes the initiative seriously.
