Review the typical stages in a team's life cycle forming,storming,norming,performing,and adjourning. Think of a time when you were a member of a work team.
1) Were all those stages represented?
2) Did they appear in a different order?
3) Did some of them emerge more than once?
The last life cycle phase I've often heard as "mourning" instead of "adjourning." Interesting difference.
I was once involved in a corporate process in which two factions of the company were unwillingly forced together to labor on a project. The "Storming" phase happened first, and sadly, little else after.
