  6. 6 Collaboration Through Team Building When groups are formed into teams: • Roles and interactions are not established. • Some members may observe as they attempt to determine what’s expected of them. • Others engage the team process immediately. • As members learn their roles they find ways to work together and learn about team issues. • These processes occur in 4 stages.
  7. 7 Collaboration Through Team Building Stage One - Forming Period in which members are often guarded in their interactions because they’re not sure what to expect from other team members. This is also the period in which members form opinions of their teammates. During this stage, productivity is low.

  10. 10 Collaboration Through Team Building Storming - Enhance Team Development by: • Joint problem solving. • Norms for different points of view. • Decision-making procedures. • Encourage two-way communication. • Support collaborative team efforts.
  11. 11 Stage three -Norming Characterized by cohesiveness among members. In this phase, members realize their commonalities and learn to appreciate their differences. Functional relationships are developed resulting in the evolution of trust among members. Collaboration Through Team Building
  12. 12 Collaboration Through Team Building Norming - Enhance Team Development by: • Communicate frequently and openly about concerns. • Encourage members to manage the team process. • Give positive and constructive feedback. • Support consensus decision-making efforts. • Delegate to team members as much as possible.
  13. 13 Stage four -Performing The team now possesses the capability to define tasks, work through relationships, and manage team conflicts by themselves. Communication is open and supportive. Members interact with without fear of rejection. Leadership is participative and shared. Different viewpoints and information is shared openly. Conflict is now viewed as a catalyst that generates creativity in the problem-solving process. Collaboration Through Team Building
  14. 14 Collaboration Through Team Building Performing - Enhance Team Development by: • Offer feedback when requested. • Support new ideas and ways for achieving outcomes. • Encourage ongoing self-assessment. • Develop team members to their fullest potential. • Look for ways to increase the team’s capacity.
  15. 15 Collaboration Through Team Building REMEMBER!!! Any change in the composition of the team or its leadership will return the team to the forming stage.
  16. 16 Collaboration Through Team Building The most effective teams arrive at decisions through consensus by following a rational process that includes: • Identifying the issue. • Setting a specific objective. • Gathering and analyzing the facts. • Developing alternatives. • Evaluating the alternatives. • Deciding and acting.
  17. 17 Collaboration Through Team Building In addition to the problem solving process, teams must also engage in interpersonal interaction. Decisions are made and objectives are achieved not only by effectively following the problem solving process, but also to the extent that team members share information in an open, candid, honest, and trustful manner.
  18. 18 Collaboration Through Team Building Activity: “Hurricane Disaster” - problem solving and team building exercise.
  19. 19 • Identifying the issue. • Setting a specific objective. • Gathering and analyzing the facts. • Developing alternatives. • Evaluating the alternatives. • Deciding and acting. Collaboration Through Team Building Problem Solving Process
  20. 20 Collaboration Through Team Building “Hurricane Disaster” Activity - Five essential strategies: 1. Issue an evacuation order and ensure it is communicated throughout the entire community using all available resources. 2. Order that all designated emergency shelters be opened and manned. 3.
