Team building goes through stages according to Bruce Tuckman who came up with the theory in 1965. Building a team takes time and effort. Do not expect a group of people to work together smoothly for the first time. The following are 5 essential stages that a business goes through during team building:


1- ‘Forming’ Stage of Team Building

2- ‘Storming’ Stage of Teamwork

3- ‘Norming’ Stage of Team Building

4- ‘Performing’ Stage in Team Development 

5- The last stage is the ‘Adjourning’ Stage.
