All About Teams

Teams often generate a tremendous amount of positive energy when they are first formed. Team members want to roll up their sleeves and tackle their tasks immediately. As individuals join together, the team takes on a life of its own. It will even go through stages of development comparable to the stages of individual growth: infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and old age. Each stage has its own characteristics and requirements; each stage builds on the previous ones.

While the stages of team development are sequential and predictable, each team is unique in how it progresses and regresses through these stages. Some stages can be more painful than others; sometimes teams get stuck in a particular stage and cannot advance.
