Types of Team
1 Lecture 05:20

The Merriam Webster Dictionary defines a team as a number of persons associated together in work or activity. Teams are formed for many purposes. Examples include project teams, ad-hoc teams, quality improvement teams, and task forces. Sometimes the team is formed to work on a goal as an adjunct to a traditional hierarchy in an organization. At other times, the team is designed to replace the hierarchy.

1 Lecture 01:44

When a new team forms, it concerns itself with becoming oriented. It does this through testing. It tests to discover the boundaries of interpersonal and task behaviour At the same time, the members are establishing dependency relationships with leaders, fellow team members, or any standards that existed when the group formed. The behaviours of orientation, testing and dependence become the process called Forming.

Members behave independently when the team forms. While there may be good will towards fellow members, unconditional trust is not yet possible.

The Second Stage
1 Lecture 02:19

In the Storming phase, the team starts to address the objective(s), suggesting ideas. It empowers itself to share leadership. Different ideas may compete for consideration, and if badly managed, this phase can be very destructive for the team. Egos emerge and turf wars occur. In extreme cases, the team can become stuck in this phase.

If a team is too focused on consensus, they may decide on a plan which is less effective to complete the task for the sake of the team. This carries its own set of challenges. It is essential that a team has strong facilitative leadership during this phase.

Once teams move from Norming to Performing, they are identified by high levels of independence, motivation, knowledge and competence. Decision making is collaborative and dissent is expected and encouraged as there will be a high level of respect in the communication between team members.

Making the Most of Meetings
1 Lecture 02:11

Giving thought to time and place considerations for a team meeting can go a long way toward producing a more effective meeting outcome. Below are some elements to think about.

  • Is the location convenient?
  • Quiet. Is the meeting going to be held in an open environment? Near the plant?
  • Is this an e-team meeting? Or a meeting with members in remote locations or different time zones?
  • What time of day is best?
  • Are there time zone considerations for e-teams or remote participants?
  • For what other interruptions and distractions can you anticipate and plan?
