A group of friends. One task. Ten minutes or less. How will you solve the problem?
Teams, of course, as human relationships, operate much the same way. They require their successes and their high points, absolutely! But the teams that really last are willing to grind it out, day in and day out, battling through the conflicts and petty squabbles that threaten to pull most teammates apart. In the teambuilding field, one often hears about Forming/Storming/Norming/Performing: the team cycle that begins with initial formation, followed by conflict, followed by moderate success, and concluding with heightened performance levels. Myself, I think it looks more like this: Forming, storming, norming, storming, norming, storming, norming, performing, storming, norming, etc. In other words, relationships aren’t linear. They keep looping back on themselves, starting over, again and again..Team Building
