Building a Team: Storming

building a team survivors

Sometimes building a team can feel like being on Survivor Island, with everyone fighting to make sure their strategy will win out in the end.

Let’s say you’re a couple of weeks into your new assignment, and your team has made it through the ‘Getting to Know You’, or Forming, phase of your group’s journey. What comes next!? Well, according to Tuckman’s Model of Group Development (and Murphy’s Law) the next phase is generally one of upheaval and conflict – (cue ominous music) ’Storming’.

Building a Team: Forming

company team building

Unless you’re stranded alone on a deserted island, chances are good that you are part of a team on a regular basis.

It may be a small team, it may be a large team, but these teams help us accomplish our common goals and further our mutual causes.

Bonjour from Boston!

destination management conference

It was just about two weeks ago now that Stephanie and I made our way to our neighbors of the North and attended the ADMEI 2013 Conference and I have to tell you – we are still Mad For Montreal!

From start to finish, ADMEI 2013 was the experience of a lifetime! Highlights for us range from leading the Eight Cold Girls to victory in the scavenger hunt on Thursday afternoon to chatting with our fellow Bostonians at Corinthian during cocktail hour and introducing David Adler and Bent Hadler during Friday’s Plan-a-thon session! Having lunch with David and some friends on the final day of the conference was also quite a treat – the conversations we shared (and the chicken!) will not be forgotten!
