In the norming stage, consensus develops around who the leader or leaders are, and individual member's roles.
⚠Failing in dealing with norming stage can hurt your team productivity.
Examples of bad norming are where:
- a team member talks about a team member and not to that team member about an issue,🗣
- the team leader refuses to handle a problem within the team,❌
- team members break into two or three cliques which do not cooperate effectively with each other, and/or 🪓
- team members avoid raising issues because they are apprehensive about how their fellow team members would respond🤫 (Giesen & Osborne, 2008).
