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 – Corporate Crime Scene Investigation 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?
