Exercises

1: Watch the movie clip and then answer the questions.

Why is everyone so angry in the movie clip?

Discuss the stage through which this team is going. Do you feel that things will eventually be sorted out? Why?

2: In the following scene, Sarah (employee), Jennifer (employee), Brian (employee), and Matt (employee) are in a conference room. Day planners, folders, and papers are on the table, but nothing is spread out, just stacked in front of the individual team members as if the meeting is just beginning.

Brian:(Looking around at the other team members) So, does anyone have any ideas on where we should begin?

Jennifer:(Shaking her head, looking doubtful) Actually, I’m not really sure I even understand what we’re supposed to do.

Sarah:(Smiling and chuckling slightly) I’m glad that I’m not the only person who feels that way.

Matt:(Upbeat) Well, let’s talk about that. I know we all probably feel a little unsure, but once we get started, things will start to fall into place. (taking a sheet of paper from his day planner) Why don’t we start by going over this memo Mr. Stevenson sent us that outlines the project?

Which stage of team formation is this team going through? How can you conclude this?
