Bruce Tuckman created five stages for group development which include forming, storming, norming, performing and adjourning (Losh, 2011, sec. 3.6). Forming is the initial stage of the group coming together. It is during this process that the group is not 100% of each other and how to work with each since they may know little to know information about each other. One thing that a manager can to help make this uncomfortable transition a little less painful is instead of just getting to the point of the reason that the group has been formed, engage in an icebreaker. The activity will give each member a chance to get to know a little about each other. Storming is what is generated by the competition and conflict within the personal rations of the group. This is something that is bound to happen either way when you have multiple personalities gather and working in proximity. There is not much management can do to help the group with this so the players must resolve the differences to proceed to the next stage.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
