Key Ideas

The challenge of the teamwork

Teamwork is perceived as being extremely efficient in our everyday working structure, as it develops social skills in addition to enabling a faster achievement of goals.

However, each and every person who is part of the team has to give his or her best in order for the team itself to function successfully.

The drawback of working groups

The so-called 'working groups' tend to be successful as long as the issue that needs to be solved has a low level of complexity. However, for goals that are more challenging, they seldom prove to be useful.

A working group's transformation

Whenever a working group has as goal to become a real team, difficulties are to be expected. Going from working individually to working together, as a team, requires great skills of leadership as well as determination and patience from every single member of the team.

True teamwork

True teamwork is defined by common goals, work methods and a shared vision. Furthermore, the mutual support makes the goals more attainable overall.

Teams at their best

Teams reach their highest performance level whenever each individual, as a part of them, learns how to develop and specialize in a certain field, providing to his or her team the means to further collective improvement.

Group Development Theory

Dr. Bruce Tuckman, a psychology professor, synthesized team development into four basic stages: Forming, Storming, Norming, and Performing.

Forming

This stage of teamwork is all about first meetings and first impressions.

What everyone needs most is a clear understanding of their part in the journey and a setup for building emotional connections. Setting goals together puts their skills and interests into the open.

Storming

Most teams go through the storming stage in some form or another because discord is inevitable. The key value to emphasize in the team is positive intent. 

A little conflict is needed to bring upfront weak spots in projects and to bring new valid arguments to the table. But constant storming leads to the destruction of productivity, projects, and ultimately, the team itself.
