Navigate the Phases of Team Development with Speed and Agility

Navigate Event April 29 2021

Webinar speaker: Scott M. Graffius

Perhaps you’ve had heard about the phases of team development: Forming, Storming, Norming, Performing, and Adjourning. But are you aware of the unique behaviors specific to each phase? What exactly should you do during each phase to help the team (agile or otherwise) tackle challenges, make progress, and become successful?

If you are a leader (or aspire to be one), a member of a team (or may be in one in the future), or are just looking to develop your skills, this talk (based on Bruce Tuckman's model, but with a fresh angle: 0% theory, 100% real-world-based) will give you a practical framework with actionable tips for working in and leading teams successfully. You'll learn about the five phases — Forming, Storming, Norming, Performing, and Adjourning — including detailed descriptions of each along with proven strategies for addressing challenges or issues which may occur along the way. You'll understand how to use the model to your advantage by effectively navigating all of the phases with speed and agility, from team set-up to the after-party!

This talk will help you develop and enhance the contributions you make to your organization by being able to:

  • Understand the five stages of team development: Forming, Storming, Norming, Performing, and Adjourning.
  • Learn the characteristics of each phase.
  • Apply proven strategies to help handle challenges or issues experienced by the team. By doing so, you’ll advance the team’s success.

The presentation draws on the speaker’s first-hand, real-world experience, with his guidance supported by additional research and recommendations from the PMI, IEEE, MIT, Harvard Business Review, and others.
