Development Forming Storming Norming Performing Mourning Individual behaviour is driven by a desire to be accepted by the others, and avoid controversy or conflict.
Serious issues and feelings are avoided, and people focus on being busy with routines, such as team organisation, who does what, when to meet, etc. Individuals in the group can only remain nice to each other for so long, as important issues start to be addressed.
Some people's patience will break early, and minor confrontations will arise that are quickly dealt with or glossed over. These may relate to the work of the group itself, or to roles and responsibilities within the group. As Stage 2 evolves, the "rules of engagement" for the group become established, and the scope of the group's tasks or responsibilities are clear and agreed.
Having had their arguments, they now understand each other better, and can appreciate each other's skills and experience.
Individuals listen to each other, appreciate and support each other, and are prepared to change pre-conceived views Everyone knows each other well enough to be able to work together, and trusts each other enough to allow independent activity. Everyone is equally task-orientated and people-orientated.
This high degree of trust means that all the energy of the group can be directed towards the overall goal. This is about completion and disengagement, both from the tasks and the group members.
Individuals will be proud of having achieved much and glad to have been part of such an enjoyable group. They need to recognise what they've done, and consciously move on. Where is our group at?
