for those interested in learning more here are a few articles I've come across on the web that I think are worthy of reading:
Gina Abudi's Five Stages of Team Development: A Case Study- Click here to read
Judith Stein's Using the Stages of Team Development - HR At MIT - Click here to read
MindTools' resource around Understanding the Stages of Team Formation - Click here to read
I write about these stages in greater depth and how coaches and other facilitators can support teams through the process. If you have Effective Group Coaching take a look at pages 60-62, and in From One to Many: Best Practices for Team and Group Coaching (Jossey-Bass, 2013) please refer to pgs 198 and 199.
What are you noticing about what's needed by your team right now?
Have a great start to the week,
