11 Stages in Team Building
Forming Storming Norming As the team matures, members gradually learn to cope with each other and the pressures that they face. As a result, the team goes through the fairly predictable stages noted on the slide. - Team Game – Sell your self – Campaign Craze Performing

12 Stage 1: FORMING Team Building Task Define team
Determine individual roles Develop trust and communication Develop norms Task Define problem and strategy Identify information needed To help the members adapt to their team, it might be wise to have them to simple activities to build trust and establish communication between the members. However, in the context of the computational science project many of the forming actions are undertaken as the team determines what their project topic will be and narrows the focus to reach their project goal. Leader can help members as they "form" their teams by making sure that they understand the process they will go through to get their task. You may want to include some activities to illustrate trust and/or communication skills in a team.

13 Team Norms How do we support each other?
What do we do when we have problems? What are my responsibilities to the team?

14 Stage 2: STORMING During the Storming stage team members:
realize that the task is more difficult than they imagined; have fluctuations in attitude about chances of success; may be resistant to the task; and, have poor collaboration. This is probably the most difficult stage for the team. They may be floundering trying to find a project topic that is narrow enough to study or a mentor to help them. They begin to realize that this project is different than other ones that they have done in the past. Teachers can help students through this stage by encouraging members to use their individual skills and assume more responsibilities. Understanding how personality types interact can ease some of the tensions in the storming stage.

15 STORMING DIOGNINS Do we have common goals and objectives?
Do we agree on roles and responsibilities? Do our task, communication, and decision systems work? Do we have adequate interpersonal skills? As a leader, you can help your members when they are in the “storming” stage, by focusing their attention on the questions above. The students may want to answer the first question both in general terms and more specifically, in conjunction with their project goals.

16 Stage 3: Norming During this stage members accept: their team;
team rules and procedures; their roles in the team; and, the individuality of fellow members. Team members realize that they are not going to crash-and-burn and start helping each other. During this stage, team members begin to work out their differences and now have more time and energy to spend on their work. Thus they are able to start making significant progress. In the context of the computational science project, the students have probably found a mentor who is helping them and have narrowed their project focus.

17 Behaviors Competitive relationships become more cooperative.
There is a willingness to confront issues and solve problems. Teams develop the ability to express criticism constructively. There is a sense of team spirit. During this stage, you should encourage team members to: do detailed planning develop criteria for completion of goals build on positive norms and change unhealthy norms encourage continued team spirit Now that the team is working well, it is important for team members to learn to communicate with each other including how to constructively criticize when necessary.

18 Stage 4: PERFORMING Team members have:
gained insight into personal and team processes; a better understanding of each other’s strengths and weaknesses; gained the ability to prevent or work through group conflict and resolve differences; and, developed a close attachment to the team. During the performing stage, the team is now an effective and cohesive unit. As a team, the emphasize quality work; utilize each member’s talents; meet deadlines; and continue to work on team commitment. Examples of the results of good team work can be seen on the Video tapes and CDs from the National Expos. The presentation itself is an example of team work. The duration and intensity of these stages vary from team to team. Sometimes Stage 4 is achieved in a meeting or two; other times it takes months. Understanding the stages of growth will keep you from overreacting to normal problems and setting unrealistic expectations. Don’t panic. With patience and effort the assembly of independent individuals will grow into a team.

19 How can I become a better team member?
Keep the broader picture in mind rather than getting absorbed in ‘my’ ‘own’ task My efforts should add value to the team My goal not achieved if team goal is not Use resources just sufficient to complete my part of the team task ‘Sail on’, rather than ‘pass on’ Create cooperative, friendly climate in team

20 Recipe for Successful Team
Commitment to shared goals and objectives Good Personal Relationships Clearly define roles and responsibilities Use best skills of each Allows each to develop in all areas

21 Recipe for Successful Team
Effective systems and processes Clear communication Beneficial team behaviors; well-defined decision procedures and ground rules Balanced participation Awareness of the group process Good personal relationships

22 Importance of Constructive Feedback
Be descriptive. Don't use labels. Don’t exaggerate. Don’t be judgmental. Speak for yourself.

23 Constructive Feedback Contd…
Use “I” messages. Restrict your feedback to things you know for certain. Help people hear and accept your compliments when giving positive feedback.

24 Guide for Giving Constructive Feedback
When you …. describe behavior I feel ….. how behavior affects you Because I … why behavior affects you (Pause for discussion) …. let other person(s) respond I would like …. what change would you like Because …. why change will alleviate problem What do you think …. Listen to other person’s response and discuss options

25 The Most Effective Teams:
Share information openly Participate in the team’s task Encourage each other Use all of the team’s resources

26 Problem Solving Process – In Team
Identifying the issue. Setting a specific objective. Gathering and analyzing the facts. Developing alternatives. Evaluating the alternatives. Deciding and acting.

27 BOSS To LEADER BOSS Guides the team Drives the team

28 Who is a Team Leader Contact point for communication between team and management Full-fledged team member Assists the team by immediately implementing changes that are within the bounds of the team If participants vision is different from what is in the slide. ! Do you’ll agree with the points stated

29 Questions What do you expect from your teammates?
What should they expect from you? Ask the participants to make notes in a note page Most important is what they believe that the team members should expect from them

30 SWOT – As A Leader Strengths Weakness Opportunity Threat

31 Personal Characteristics of Team Leader
Appearance Self – confidence Communication Skills Alertness Maturity Sense of Humor Intelligence Warmth Sensitizing the feedback Naturalness Ability to work with others

32 BUILDING THE TEAM: Building the team is like recruitment.
One needs to select the right people and motivate them. He understands the pressures and the soft points of people, and uses this knowledge to make them part of his team. Each one of his team members is treated as special, as being different.

33 ALLOCATING ROLES: Bhuvan also assigns responsibilities to each of his people. Just getting the people in the team is not good enough. They have to be told what the goal is. A team consists of different individuals. The objective is to make them all work together like a fist, like a team.

Bhuvan backs his team members to the hilt, even when they make mistakes. It is indeed important in any team that the captain backs the right person, at the right time, for the right job.

35 Leading A Team Multiple Styles Lead – don’t be the whole team
Find your own style Lead – don’t be the whole team You can’t do everything yourself Lead – don’t follow Don’t let the team members drive the team Lead – don’t drive Don’t be a dictator

36 Characteristics of Good Team Leader
Build Trust Train members for empowerment Provide full information to team Knows all team members Develop team spirit Encourage members to excel Create an enthusiastic environment Shares success with members

37 A fully functioning team can…
Work together successfully Solve problems and reach decisions in a way that incorporates individual input Reach decisions through consensus Can adapt to change Achieve or exceed desired results

38 Individual Development
Competence Knowledge Skill Commitment Confidence Motivation

39 Stories Dying old man and bundle of sticks
Synergy through teams 1+1 >> 2 What can we learn from little ants? From honeybees? From the birds flying in a formation?

40 THE MAGIC OF SYNERGY Normally, 1+1=2.
But, sometimes when we work as a TEAM, 1+1 may become 11, 111, or even 1111! In fact, there is no limit. That is called SYNERGY; It is SYNCHRONISED ENERGY. It has a MULITIPLIER EFFECT. It grows in GEOMETRIC PROGRESSION, or even EXPONENTIAL "exponential growth" means growing at a rate that is proportional to the current size.
