  • TEAMS: THEIR FORMING AND THEIR PERFORMANCE Presentation by Jeremiah Josey www.jeremiahjosey.com Member of Mensa International www.linkedin.com/in/jeremiahjosey
  • AGENDA
      • Why Have Team
      • 4 Stages of a Successful Team
      • Challenges to Reach all 4 Stages
      • How to Do It
      • How Are we going on EF/1727
  • Why have a Team
      • Individual Effort is fine (It actually works well in Kuwait – for about 12 months)
      • Many hands make light work
      • Quality improved – it becomes automatic
      • More is achieved in a shorter time: 1 person = 50 hours per week, 10 people = 500 hours per week.
  • 4 Stages of a Successful Team
      • FORMING
      • STORMING
      • NORMING
      • PERFORMING
  • FORMING
      • Gathering a group of people together for a common purpose
      • Is the vision for the group clear?
      • Is the mix of individuals right – Introverts, Extroverts, Sensory or Intuitive?
      • Is the skill level right?
      • Are there adequate resources, information, assistance available?
      • The leader directs, the individuals do. Very little team work.
  • STORMING
      • Ironing out the creases
      • Personalities clashing
      • Change out / change in as required
      • Learning each others work styles
      • Chaos, unclear, confusing, lack of systems
      • The leader holds it all together. Still lots of direction given to individuals. No team work.
  • NORMING
      • Getting comfortable
      • Feeling Stable
      • Understanding each others work styles
      • Individuals performing in small groups mostly
      • Occasionally performing as an autonomous team
      • Coaching and guidance by the leader
  • PERFORMING
      • Team work happens
      • Effort goes down
      • Results go up – they multiply
      • Big problems become small problems
      • Small problems disappear
      • Things just seem to happen
      • The leader is no longer obvious
  • Challenges to Reach All 4 Stages
      • Trust Levels – trusting yourself and others
      • Different Ethnic Backgrounds
      • Different Experiences
      • Different Expectations
      • Emotional Intelligence
      • Empathy
  • Two Ears and one mouth = listen twice as much as you speak
  • 1. FORMING 2. STORMING 3. NORMING 4. PERFORMING Individual Effort Transition – Group Work Team Work
  • MOST TEAMS…
      • Most teams never get out of the Forming/Storming Cycle
    FORMING                                                     STORMING When do we do NORMING & PERFORMING??…
  • STORM THE CHALLENGE FORMING             STORMING             NORMING             PERFORMING EFFORT
  • HOW TO SURVIVE
      • Work out how to talk to the leader – know their style and work with it
      • Find a mentor – someone outside the team who can give you advice
      • Always ask questions
      • Acknowledge your fears and uncertainties – work a way around or through them
      • Stick out the Storming phase – or worst case: get out
  • EF/1727
      • What Team Stage is this Project in?
      • What has to happen next?
      • What are the good points? (6 of them)
