Lesson 5: The Second Stage of Team Development – Storming

Case Study

At their next meeting, Terry’s team got down to business. They had all been tasked with bringing a plan to meet their goal, and everyone was sharing their solutions with the group. Terry encouraged everyone to speak up if they find flaws in another’s plan, but to only if they had constructive criticism to offer. When Sarah pointed out a snag in Paul’s plan, Paul took it personally at first. He started to interrupt Sarah, but Terry asked him to just hear her out. When Sarah was finished explaining how he could quickly fix his problem, he realized she was right and apologized for interrupting. Thanks to Terry’s leadership, the group was able to share ideas freely and constructively.
