This unit has given you the opportunity to reflect on your definition of a successful team. You have also read an article where other business leaders share their experiences, and have reviewed Tuckman's Theory of Developmental Sequence in small groups. Take some time to answer the following questions and share your perspectives in the discussion folder called Teamwork - Teambuilding in the Interactive Community.

  • Has your definition of a successful team been altered? If yes, how?
  • How could you apply your knowledge of Tuckman's Theory to your workplace? Will an awareness of the stages influence your participation in a work team?
  • What barriers have you experienced working on a team? Were you able to overcome this barrier and be successful? Why or why not?
