Samantha Tuckman’s suggestion was met with a positive response. It highlights the need for leaders to foster team cohesiveness and leadership. A lack of trust between members of the team can negatively impact performance and efficiency when moving to another stage. Samantha is correct in stating that confusion and uncertainty are common characteristics of the stage as people from different perspectives come together to achieve shared goals. Through storming, norming, performing, and adjourning, this procedure is characterized by compromises, consensus building, and teamwork to achieve efficiency (Briziarelli & Guillem, 2016). Samantha is right to assert that team building reduces the likelihood of dysfunction because members are able to recognize and accept each other’s strengths and weaknesses and focus on the common goals. Good team building allows the team to create comprehensive communication strategies which improve feedback delivery and decrease disputes that result from miscommunications between team members.
Alexis Alexis responded to Alexis Alexis’s statement that creating phases was the most challenging part. Some people arrive at decisions and attitudes predetermined and rigid, which makes it difficult for others to be open to accepting mutually agreed upon aims and goals (Morden (2016)). One Phone System Inc is a good example of the impact prejudgment has on teambuilding. Due to lack of leadership, Alexis had low participation. Storming gives team members an opportunity to assess their individual strengths and draw up a leadership team. Lack of leadership can cause confusion, redundancies and make it difficult for a team to achieve its objectives and goals. The lack of leadership also causes communication to be impeded as the information flow is disrupted and the feedback system is not functioning properly. Alexis rightly asserts that successful team-building promotes complex structures, rules, norms, and concentration of stakeholder. Alexis’s implication that identifying a leader might be a huge difficulty for the team due to the fact that every member has a strong opinion about what they want and is reluctant to compromise seems plausible (Sackett & Walmsley, 2016). The team might be able to achieve greater efficiency if they have a qualified leader.
