This course discusses the stages of team development, the impact that norms, cohesiveness, and size has on teams, and how to deal with team conflict.  As a team grows and develops they will go through five distinct stages of development: forming, storming, norming, performing, and adjourning (or reforming).  During the first stages of development, teams will create their own informally agreed-upon standards that regulate team behavior, which leads to cohesiveness.  Both the size of the team and how they resolve conflict has an impact on overall team effectiveness.

After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • State the five stages of team development.
  • Describe how team norms are formed.
  • Summarize team cohesiveness.
  • Explain the impact of size on teams
  • List ways to deal with team conflict.

All materials are included in this course.
