Where Leadership Styles meet Tuckman

You might remember the Tuckman stages for group development. If you’ve checked up on this, you might have wondered how to manage this.

  • Forming: The group comes together and gets to initially know one other and form as a group. During this phase you’ll have to be very direct in your goals, and stay close.
  • Storming: A chaotic vying for leadership and trialling of group processes. Here you’ll be applying a coaching attitude.
  • Norming: Eventually agreement is reached on how the group operates (norming). You should take part of the group, yet you should only guide them.
  • Performing: The group practices its craft and becomes effective in meeting its objectives. You’re comfortable to delegate things, as they are at their peak.

  1. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
