A new team following a reorganization, existing conflicts in the team, a new manager in the team: just a few examples of situations where team development is useful for helping a team to return to full performance quickly. Our goal is to bring about a measurable increase in performance and productivity through team development. To this end, we use tried and trusted business-oriented case studies as tools for reflection. Deriving concrete measures and evaluating team development are central to the service we provide.
Our psychological team analysis tool is used to give individuals feedback on their role in the team. Another salient characteristic is advance team diagnoses: talks are held in advance with the central team members with a view to undertaking an individual preparation of team development based on hypotheses.
Forming, storming, norming, performing … these stages in the team development process are now sufficiently well known. But how do I gauge my team’s current situation? What does the stage in question mean for me as a team member? What is required of team leaders in each stage?
