Monday Morning Minute Episode #012 – How To Move Your Team Up The Tuckman Model



If you managed a remote team for a while, you’ll have a good feel of “where they’re at”.

In last week’s episode I gave you a framework to help you define “where they’re at”.

In this week’s episode, I share some recommendations to help you move them from “where they’re at” to the next stage on their development journey.

This will only be valuable to you if “where they’re at” is not where you’d like them to be.

Let me know in the comments, which of the suggestions in this short (1 min) video resonates with you the most.

Welcome to this week's episode of the Monday Morning Minute

In last week's episode I introduced you to the Tuckman model of team development which consisted of these four stages:





After looking at your team last week, where do you think it sits on this model?

Well this week I'm going to give you one thing you can do in each stage as the manager to help your remote team evolve through that stage

So if your team is in the FORMING stage, the best thing you can do is establish clear objectives for the team and individual team members.

In the STORMING stage, your job is to resolve conflicts quickly, build trust and develop good relationships between team members.

In the NORMING stage, start to take more of a back seat and let them take more responsibility for achieving your objectives.

In the PERFORMING stage - well now you can delegate much more and begin focusing on developing individual team members.

Whatever stage you're at, there's a lot to do, but it'll be worth it.

Until next week
