Teambuilding Effectiveness

Successful teams don't just happen. Instead they are the result of the intentional decisions actions and attitudes of their members and require the commitment of everyone involved.

Well before any attempt has been made to build a team’s skills, it is critical to understand the stages through which a typical team will travel over time. A considerable amount of research has been done on the stages of team growth. This suggests that teams go through four distinct phases: Forming, Storming, Norming and Performing. This looks at an individual’s ability to effectively build the team using the Forming, Storming, Norming and Performing model, with seven separate categories in all:

  • Vision and Directional Focus (Forming)
  • Alignment of Values (Forming)
  • Team Role and Competency Clarity (Storming)
  • Ground Rules Determination (Norming)
  • Performance Appraisal Effectiveness (Norming)
  • Team Learning and Results Focus (Performing)
  • Boundary Management (Performing)
