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.
Your team has decided to put the well-being of the group as a whole ahead of individual wants, desires and opinions. You’ve come up with a concrete plan and are coming together to ensure your team’s success. In other words…
The train has left the station!
Soon you’ll be in full effect, working efficiently and making some real progress. TeamBonding has specific programs to help you stay focused and gain speed along the way. Build a Mini-Golf Course, Survey Says, Team Cuisine, and CCSI Crime Scene Investigation Game will all get your team focused on the mission at hand.
The finish line is close, will we see you and your team there?!
Are you in the process of building a team? How will you implement efficiencies once your group has learned to compromise?
We’ve outlined five steps for starting and managing a remote team with a focus on building culture.

In our 25+ years of experience, it’s not surprising that it’s in our nature, which is ultimately what has defined our success. The Founder, David Goldstein has been actively building his team for years, so it’s no secret he’s got the best team! Not only does David plan activities for his team to enjoy, but he also began a whole engagement committee to toss around ideas for his team to do… and the sky is the limit.
There are little things that people do that can cause us to scream in our heads – “Oh My God, Oh My God, Oh My God, will you stop PLEASE!” – but the annoyances are usually so trivial that no one ever really shares their frustration out loud…at least not until it’s too late to sound rational.

Greenscape your workspace. Now that you’re carpooling to work, want to greenscape your workspace? Here’s what you do.
#1 Carpools, rideshares and biking. Oh my! Going green isn’t just about what you do at home. If you’re spending 40 hours a week at work, that’s likely over 35% of your waking life in an office. You may have noticed that for a team of people, that much time in the office can all add up to a lot of waste.
When it’s summer time, head outside to enjoy the rays and blue skies. DYI (Do it yourself) outdoor team building is a great way to learn new activities while surrounded by fun company and building strong bonds.
