13 Phases in Team Development Bruce Tuckman 1965
Forming Storming Norming Performing

14 Phases Forming - Get to know one another
How leader leads – What members are to do – learning to fit in – how to add value – Leaders should be dominant at this Phase At this stage need to direct team – set clear goals & objectives for team and team members

15 Phases Storming – Push and shove against boundaries
conflicts may arise - challenge authority – want own way – see how far they can go – clarify roles – This phase is where many teams fail. At this stage set policy and procedure – build trust and good relationships – Resolve conflicts – look at different styles, conflicts, personalities

16 Phases Norming – resolve differences – appreciate others strengths and support Respect authority and direction – learn to know each other and become one team – socialize together and form relationships – become committed At this stage let members take responsibility – Leadership may change, whoever has the expertise takes over the leadership for that task.

17 Phases Performing – achieving goal – little friction – work
together as team – leader can delegate and let team do what they want and how they want – people who join and leave do not disrupt performance. Team runs on its own. In this stage most can be delegated to the team – Team may run itself and does not need much leadership
