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.

Only the strongest teams can call themselves members of this most elite group.

Not only have you worked out all the kinks, but you’ve become a well oiled machine. One of the nicest things about performing as a team is that the team no longer needs external supervision for the most part. You’re highly efficient, motivated, goal oriented and most importantly, you work together as a team instead of as a group of individuals. Go team!

Rinse, and Repeat. Continue performing as a team!

Just like any living thing, your team will go through growing pains from time to time. You may find yourselves back at the Storming or Norming stages for a short period of time, but if your team has strong leadership and a worthwhile purpose that periodic step back won’t last long. Plus, revisiting other stages of group development may be necessity when dealing with change, like adding new team members to the group.

TeamBonding’s training programs are great for long term group maintenance.

Change Management can all help you keep your team morale high and minimize any bumps in the road.
