A teamwork environment promotes an atmosphere that fosters friendship and loyalty.
These close-knit relationships motivate employees in parallel and align them to work harder,
cooperate and be supportive of one another. Individuals possess diverse talents,
weaknesses, communication skills, strengths, and habits.
Bruce Tuckman, an educational psychologist, identified a five-stage development process
that most teams follow to become high performing. He called the stages: forming,
storming, norming, performing, and adjourning.
High Performance Teams need to be :
- Commitment and Trust.
- Open Lines of Communication.
- Diversity of Capabilities.
- Adaptable to Changing Conditions.
- Confidence and Creative Freedom.
