The Forming – Storming – Norming – Performing model of group development was first proposed by Bruce Tuckman in 1965, who maintained that these phases are all necessary and inevitable in order for a team to grow, to face up to challenges, to tackle problems, to find solutions, to plan work, and to deliver results. This model has become the basis for subsequent models of Team development and a management theory frequently used to describe the behavior of existing teams. It has also taken a firm hold in the field of experiential learning as team development and leadership development are key goals.

At CoachMatching, as team developers, we work with this maturation process in order to accelerate movement through the various phases and to assist teams in identifying what their purpose and processes are. We explore how they engage with each other from both a systemic and humanistic perspective, what the trust and commitment levels are and were possible encourage team targets to be set to measure and reward appropriate behaviours.
Our team developers hold knowledge of this process and other effective methods to strengthen aspects within a given team to move them from good to great. Our strength lies in finding the right balance between various different roles (expert, moderator, participating observer, someone responsible for the process) and between organisational assistance and attention to the group’s performance.
