As Project Managers, we are challenged to help teams understand the big picture, move beyond bottlenecks, resolve conflict in a productive fashion and deliver quality projects/products on time, under budget and within scope.  While processes may be predictable and repeatable, people are often not.  Managing people in a world where the only constant is change can prove to be quite a conundrum at times.

In this session, we'll take a closer look at the five stages of Tuckman's Model and how it relates to team dynamics and development. We'll cover different techniques that can be used to help identify potential bottlenecks and help your team shift gears if they find themselves stuck in the early stages.

Learning objectives:

  • Grasp the essence and characteristic sof the 5 stages of Tuckman's model
  • Identify the importance of navigating through each stage for effective growth and how to support your team's progression from one stage to the next.
  • Learn practical strategies and leadership techniques to facilitate and enhance team dynamics at each stage of Tuckman's model, ensuring a smoother path to peak performance.
