Encouragement and maintains open communication.
Stage 2: STORMING
The storming stage is necessary to the growth of the team.
The maturity of some team members usually determines whether the team
will ever move out of this stage
In this process , the team members can resolve their differences and
members will be able to participate with one another more comfortably.
Stage 3: NORMING
Roles and responsibilities are clear and accepted.
Big decisions are made by team agreement. Smaller decisions may be
delegated to team.
There is general respect for the leader and some of leadership is more
shared by the team.
All team members take the responsibility and have the ambition to
work for the success of the team's goals.
Stage 4: PERFORMING
The team is more strategically aware , the team knows clearly why it is
doing what it is doing.
The team has a high degree of autonomy.
Disagreements occur but now they are resolved within the team
positively, and necessary changes to processes and structure are made
by the team.
Team members might ask for assistance from the leader with personal
and interpersonal development.

people's vulnerabilities in Tuckman's fifth stage is helpful particularly
if members of the group have been closely bonded and feel a sense of
insecurity or threat from this change.
