Team Bonding v.s. Team Building For Work

team building for work

In order to build a team, we must first form bonds.

Take atoms for example. An atom is the smallest building block of everything that exists today. Everything!

To become everything you see and touch, atoms must work together. They need to bond with other atoms. Atoms that don’t bond are …well… just atoms.

Each atom is special, unique and awesome, but you can’t have ice cream, puppies and all the other wonderful things in this world with one single atom.

Performing as a Team – How to Succeed

In the world of group development, if you’ve gotten this far, you’ve gotten the brass ring. You’ve won the game. You have boldly gone where no team has gone before.

Okay, so maybe you’re not the only team to get here, but you’re still kind of a big deal! You know what I’m talking about right? The big, hairy audacious goalperforming as a team!

The Performing stage of Tuckman’s Model of Group Development is the icing on the cake. As tough as it is for teams to get to the Norming stage, it’s even tougher for them to get to the Performing stage.

Now Departing: “Storming”, Next Stop: “Norming”

It’s the calm after the storm. The battles have been fought, the decisions have been made, and now the dust is settling. Your team has made it to the Norming stage of Tuckman’s Model of Group Development!

Really you should be celebrating, because not all teams make it to this stage; some teams get too bogged down in ‘My Way or The Highway’ thinking, but you have learned and mastered the magic word of the Norming stage while building a team: Compromise.

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

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.

So, how does building a team work?

Do you wake up one day and boom – immediately your team is the best of the best? Of course not! Group development is a process. It takes work. We know, we know, who wants more work, right? Luckily, there are a few things that you can do to make the process less ‘ugh’ and more ‘ah!’. Where else to start but the beginning?

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!
