Developing High Performing Teams Follows A Set Path…

Developing high performing teams with my clients follows a set path...

I use a model developed in 1965 by #BruceTuckman who presented a paper outlining a model for a team to develop and grow. The model initially had 4 phases and a 5th one added some 10 years later:

  1. #Forming- where team members get to know each other and the task at hand, avoiding conflict and playing nice so they are accepted into the group.
  2. #Storming- as team members begin to feel safe, clashes appear due to different personalities and working styles, they may push the boundaries and conflicts may begin to appear between each other.
  3. #Norming- the team agrees a plan, timelines and who should do what according to their skills, while accepting any weaknesses, developing trust with each other.
  4. #Performing– as the team becomes more stable; the goals are well aligned and the team is motivated and competently gets the job done performing with minimal supervision and conflict.
  5. #Mourning#Adjourning / #Reforming – as the goal is achieved, the time comes to wrap up, and the team separates to move onto other tasks/goals.

▶️ Are you part of or have ever worked in a high-performing team? Did it follow these stages?

▶️▶️Could this model apply to friendships and relationships too?

  1. great post, very informative. I wonder why the other experts of this sector do not notice this. You should continue your writing. I’m confident, you have a huge readers’ base already!

  2. Hey, you used to write excellent, but the last few posts have been kinda boring?I miss your tremendous writings. Past several posts are just a little bit out of track! come on!

  3. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. But think about if you added some great images or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this site could undeniably be one of the very best in its niche. Good blog!

  4. Appreciating the commitment you put into your blog and in depth information you provide. It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same old rehashed information. Excellent read! I’ve bookmarked your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  5. It’s a shame you don’t have a donate button! I’d definitely donate to this excellent blog! I guess for now i’ll settle for book-marking and adding your RSS feed to my Google account. I look forward to brand new updates and will talk about this site with my Facebook group. Talk soon!

  8. Long time reader, first time commenter — so,
    thought I’d drop a comment.. — and at the same time ask
    for a favor.

    Your wordpress site is very simplistic – hope you don’t mind
    me asking what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind if I steal
    it? :P)

    I just launched my small businesses site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback)

    Keep up the good work– and take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

    (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself
    during the coronavirus scare!
